You should be using a Large Area Clearance Tool to prevent that. You can use the same size BN in this case, the difference is the Toolpath for the Large Area Clearance Tool will make multiple passes to remove the material.
Refer to the attached changes to the Moulding Toolpath. This will create two Toolpath one will be name (Clearing).

Thank You all so much, I was an over anxious new guy and if I had paid more attention to the Training video I would have gotten the information Highpockets provided!
I have a trial running on the machine now and it is going much better than the disaster I had earlier today.
I need to slow down and pay more attention to the videos prior to starting a project !

One good note from this is my wife gave me the go ahead to purchase Aspire if I need it ! I think that might just confuse me more if I did that right now, I can't even handle Vcarve desktop ! :oops:

Thank You again!
First one after class in San Diego in September is on me !

WOW! You have a "Keeper" :lol: :lol: :lol: During your learning curve I'd recommend sticking with VCarve, if you find you're running into the limits of Desktop then upgrade to VCP. One of the great thing about Vectric is your investment in VCD will be applied to the upgrade to VCP and also to Aspire, so it doesn't hurt to go slow.
The more time you spend now "Working through" the Vectric Tutorials the less frustration you'll experience.
Enjoy the ride....

Just to add to what John has said, most of the tutorials come with files you can download & use to work along side the videos so your not just watching what someone else is doing. I would start at the beginning rather than cherry pick as I believe you learn more this way & it keeps everything easier to understand if the more advanced tutorials talk about things you have already covered with the basics :lol: :lol:
A dual monitor set up or 2 machines can help with this, watch on one & follow along on the other, most importantly have fun with it :lol: :lol:

Another thing you can do is download the trial version of Aspire to start learning when you have nothing better to do.
