How to get rid of strange "double" contour?

Hello

 

I started learning SW CAM recently and was a little disappointed when I found out there are no native CNC plasma cutter settings (at least I didn't found them). However, after digging I found this handy video Automation using Save Operation Plan - YouTube by Michael Buchli . It works perfectly except for this one annoyance.

 

When I try to generate toolpath from the part it generates all inner paths correctly and one correct outer path. Then for some reason, it generates a second offset path (image 1).

I found out that the problem gets "fixed" when I create a rectangle on the outside of the part and generate toolpath from that rectangle. (image 2)

Do I have to make that rectangle every time, or is there a way to get rid of that one offset path automatically?
