I am trying to do a 2D pocket on my part for my senior engineering lab, and am having trouble. Every time I select the pocket parameters, it will not add a toolpath. Could anyone help me figure out what I am doing wrong?
I do not know about Autodesk products, so can't really help a lot.
Your file is from an EDU version, so I suspect you have no access to SOLIDWORKS CAM at this point in time (should be included in 2018-2019 version).
But - here is how it can be done in SOLIDWORKS CAM.
I also made a few small corrections to your part file - just to get a few modeling practices into your thought process as well.
There were some geometry that looked like it was unintentional.
Anyway - video link is here. It was too big for attachment, so hopefully it will make it through moderation of the board

You don't have a valid WCS set. As soon as I set one & regenerated the toolpath, all was OK.
