Hello,I don't completely understand the question.  When you are doing a push through letter, the first you select with be the Rough and the second tool is the Clean tool.  This Clean tool will provide the shoulder for the letters so they won't go through the female part.  The Width of the cut in the Cut Definition will equal the width of the shoulder and the depth of the Clean pass relative to the material thickness will determine the thickness of the shoulder. You want to cut the clean pass first and then the rough.  You can assign a 3rd tool if you want that will be a second Clean pass.  But remember that the smallest diameter tool you use for the clean passes must also be used for the female part for them to fit together and both should have the same Inlay Gap. The inlay gap is not for one side.  If this is still confusing, send me an email and we'll do a movie to explain it. 

Best regards,

EXACTLY as EJ said.. Use two bits in your toolpath.. Even
if they're the same bit. You'll do a rough pass, then a
cleanup (auto-selected). Make sure you use the same size
bit for both processes. I have found that a .0234" inline
for the push-thru is a VERY good tolerance that gives a
pretty solid fit.
