2D contour does not work??

Currently working on the Tians Academy Building Blocks. I can program the 2 D contour tool paths, no problem. I will get a nice, generated toolpath and it will simulate perfectly. At the machine, it will either only cut the lead in and lead out but not the contour or it will cut the contour then horribly violate the model and destroy the part then continue to make cuts outside of the stock boundry in air. Is this possibly an issue with fusion or more likely a problem with the post processor or machine software/controller? Yep I'm a complete newbie at this.

Hi. 2D contour usually works really well.  If you share your file perhaps we can help you.

here are the fusion files and the NC if that might help. I thank you very much for your time.

I have added the files that I have. Both the fusion and the NC file if that may help any? Thanks for the help and your time.

For the last 2D contour you have the compensation type set to "Wear"




Do you understand how to use wear at your machine controller?

If not, I'd suggest setting this back to "In Computer" and it should solve your problem
