Just a line cut out program

I’m new to all of this so trying to make all of this make sense. I just want to do a simple line cut or an outline similar to how a plasma cutter works with metal, just want to do it with wood. But every thing I do is an 8 hour carve of the shape instead of just the cut out. What am I doing wrong?

In Easel, for the object to be cut out click “Outline” and choose for instance"Inside of path" vs “Fill” you most likely have set at the moment. During this path selection you can change between Fill (Carve everything which take a lot of time), On path (bit centered above line) Outside of path (Bit touching the path from the outside) and Inside of path (Bit touch path from inside)
