First cut on S3 but stuck with CC issue

As my very first test, I’ve been trying to cut a simple contoured rectangle. The problem is when I run the CC simulation, I keep seeing a pocketed area and then my contoured rectangle lower down. I can’t figure out what the pocket is.
I’ve attached the CC and NC files.
Can someone please figure out what I’m doing wrong?
Many thanks!

The extra rectangle you’re seeing is a previewing artifact of trying to use a very small piece of stock.

Increase the stock size and it will go away.

I see, thanks Will. If I’d like the stock size to be the same, it won’t actually cut the artifact pocket will it?

Correct. Only the toolpaths will be cut – you can use a 3rd party previewer such as camotics to test that.

Brilliant, thank you :slight_smile:
