Empty toolpath on adaptive clearing in slots after update

I am having an issue with an empty toolpath on an operation ever since the latest update. Currently the toolpath is valid without errors or warnings. I can even duplicate the toolpath without issue. I have run this program and toolpath over 100 times before. The problem arises when I try to regenerate the toolpath without changing anything. It will tell me the toolpath is empty with no explanation and it does not post the code.


I am cutting a 3/4" wide slot with a 5/8" diameter endmill. I already have my optimal load, minimum cutting diameter, and lead in/out settings small enough to accommodate this because it has run before many times. I've even changed them all to 0.001" and it still gives me an empty toolpath.


Can anyone shed some insight into this problem or suggest workarounds?

Awesome, thank you very much for your help! Any reason why the toolpath generation is different now? Is it because of an update?

Possibly? But, to be honest, I'm surprised it worked to begin with in your selections. One of Fusion CAM's biggest mistakes (imo) was hiding that ALT select option and how to build onto chains for proper contour selections.
