How can I make a second toolpath to only cut out my shape?

So im attempting to cut out a house sign and I cant figure out how to use use my end mill to cut out the outline. I dont need it do any pocketing in the letters. Im using a custom vbit 60 for the font and want to do a simple 1/8 end mill to cut it out and leave holding tabs.

When I select a 2nd tool I think its using the end mill on everything even the font.

Looks like you’re on the right track. Just remove the profile cut (outline) from the first workpiece, and use a separate workpiece (looks like your third) with just the outline. Run the first with the 60° and the other with your .125" end mill.

Just kind of experimenting. I wasn’t sure if I could do it all in one project no biggie though.
