I have a simple 2d sketch that resists an outside tool path, inside tool path calculates properly.
The error is "no toolpath generated for current parameters.
Suggestions:
Thank You

Looks like you have wiggle at the top center, that could mean it has a loop there that the cutter won’t fit into, zoom in and have a look.

You could also try the Vector Validator tool to report any problems with the vectors if you can't spot it by zooming in. Sometimes the overlapping nodes can be so close that they are hard to spot even when zoomed in.
