Trying to make sense of this carve

I made this svg in illustrator. Imports in fine but I automatically get a cut depth of 0. Even the display looks like it’ll cut the way I want but it makes no sense that a cut depth of zero would carve anything. Anybody know what’s happening here?

there is a possibility you have two sets of vectors over laying each other, how about sharing the SVG?

Michael,

like mention earlier you have multiple vectors on top of each other, this is not good.

The initial photo shows black portions and white portions, those white portions are the 0 depth part, you may be able to select one piece, then go to edit>select matching depth and then delete all of the 0 depth part. . Or select all and use Edit>Combine to effectively erase the 0 depth part from the deeper depth parts, leaving the design tou may want, but this is dependent on the layering of whats on top of other objects …

Select these two areas and combine them. Should fix it. You are likely seeing the center knockout area as it is on top of the outlying border.
