On occasions when we can't get a vector toolpathe, there are three workarounds that have worked for us.

1. Go into preferences and uncheck 'clip to plate; if it is checked, and make sure the paths are actually in or on the plate.

2. Use the offset closed paths function, and inline or outline the object by a microscopic amount-say 0.01mm- and then delete the original object and use the new outline instead.  If need be, in or outline that again but the opposite way, by the same amount.
Sometimes an invisible node peak can  sneak in and cause havoc, and a tiny inline or outline tends to average them out of the equation.

3. Duplicate it to another layer, and try again from that layer.

Hope that helps!
