Makercam throwing in random lines... why!? Newb here!

Hey,

I'm trying to cut these holes out and everytime I upload my SVG which I generated in Tinkercad (I've successfully cut holes with tinkercad generated SVGs) I get the following picture with a boat load of paths criss crossing in and out!



Any help greatly appreciated! ThankS!

Re: Z axis goes up but not down! (Video included)

Success! The current had to be perfected.

BUT each time a hole or profile is pocketed or ran on it gets deeper. Could this be due to the stepdown function in makercam? How to make it cut at one depth for all passes? THANKS! EVERYONE :D :D

It just started going down, but the down is like 2x as far as I suspected it to go. I'll try and update the current to be higher.
