Can't vet a valid toolpath with Flat, what am I doing wrong?

Hey all,

 

I'm trying to run a simple finishing op on these soft jaws. I thought this would be the perfect candidate for Flat, but it keeps giving me an empty toolpath and I'm not sure why. I'd appreciate any advice on what I'm missing, as I think it's probably simple. Cheers!

Actually I just realized I was using model as stock, so it likely thinks there isn't material there to begin with.

Flat is a great toolpath.  It is "model aware" like the other 3D toolpaths.  But, at this time it doesn't support cutter compensation so you won't be able to use G41/G42.  But, perhaps one day it will have that feature.
