Ruff cut not taking enough material

My ruff cut is not taking enough material and when I switch to the detail bit it leaves material that I have to remove with a knife or wood chisel. What am I doing wrong

How much material is left? If it’s just little burrs, try pushing the bit further up into the router. For example if the max cutting depth for your carve is 1/2" then position your bit so that 5/8" or so is sticking out. If theres a lot of material being left make sure you’re using the same size bit that Easel thinks your using. Also check youre using the correct cut path. It’s happened to me before where it was set to “cut outside of path” when it needed to be set to “cut on path”.
