Just learning. Purchased an STL File and get this error when generating tool paths.
Hi, before people can help you’ll need to make your project shareable. See @SethCNC’s instructions for this here HOW TO SHARE your Easel CNC Project with a SHARE LINK - YouTube
Your end mill choices are to large for this type of carve. Change the roughing end mill to the following:

For this carve, which is similar in size, I roughed with a 1/16 bit and then used a taper bit with a manual setting equivalent to a 1/32 or approximately .03:
I still need to do a little sanding but this is only my second 3D design attempt and I have the original xcarve from 2015 with some upgrades, before inventables offered the package. Its a Frankenstein but works for what I need it to do.
FYI: That carve line you have is a pause line. another way of putting it, a long carve put on pause and continued latter.

last time I checked, mistakes are a form of learning
Thanks for the help. I will give this a go.
