3D Adaptive ignoring stock to leave

Generated fine yesterday. Didn't change anything. I have 11" of stock to leave so it should have only milled a pocket about 1.5" in diameter like it did yesterday with the same settings.

Restarting Fusion doesn't help.



EDIT: Same stuff going on with some of the spiral toolpaths. No matter how small of an outer limit radius I specify or how much stock to leave or any combination it just mills whatever. Sometimes milling outside the machining boundary.

No need to have your model selected, stock selected, and boundary selected. Youre over defining a 3D toolpath with info. Only select model if you are ADDING features to be milled (like surface patches)
Only use boundary when trying to avoid cutting into something or to confine a cut direction
Only use stock when it's necessary for Rest 

Remove those 3 and it works as needed. I set your top height to model top. You could just draw a 1.5" circle and use 2d adaptive or pocket if that's all you wanted to cut.
