As requested on support…

If you have a design which is cutting beyond the edge of the stock:

It may be fixed by:

  • drawing circles of the correct size:

Aligning with the geometry:

duping and repeating:

Drawing in geometry which defines the edge of the stock:

Selecting everything:

Using Trim Vectors to delete everything which is not needed:

until one arrives at:

which may be selected:

and then the Join Vectors command used to close the geometry:

and the new geometry re-assigned to the toolpath if need be so that cuts do not extend past the stock further than is necessary:

Repeat for all other geometry which extends beyond the stock.
