Fusion warning tool is gouging model due to unsafe linking moves.

I'm trying to do a 2D contour with a 3/8" bit after the part is first cut out with a 1/2" bit. (3/8" contour is just to get a tighter radius in some critical corners)

After successfully adding the operation I modify the toolpath by deleting segments to only cut what I need. I've done it successfully several times before in the same file. (different manufacturing model and setup but I'm using the exact same geometry in this instance)

I'm attaching screenshots showing both the successful operation in a different setup, as well as the operation in my current setup that is giving me a warning. The operation with the warning does not have the correct lead-ins and lead-outs despite the settings being identical to my previous successful operation.

I've tried everything I can think of, starting with copying the operation from my previous setup and reselecting the contours to make sure my settings were identical. After no luck there I started over from scratch, still making sure the settings were same, no dice. I've tried leaving different line segments, changing entry points, etc.

From your images it does look like there is a Lead-out difference, first image appears to have a larger Lead-out than the second image, double check your settings and as @brad.francola suggests upload the problem file if you can.

To upload a Fusion file go to :-

File > Export > Select f3d Format > Save to a location on your computer > Then attach to your reply

I noticed the difference in the leads which is very odd, the settings are identical as far as I can tell. I have no warning about unsafe linking maneuvers in the other one. I have uploaded the file now.
