Really nice design Oliver . I can't wait to own a CNC someday
Yes, I did a rough cut first. Since the finish cut was with a .125 ball nose bit it was understandably slow. I only cut at 50 ipm with the ball nose because I wasn't sure how fast I could cut without taking a chance on breaking the bit. The bit has a 1/4" shaft and is running in a Dewalt 611 router. Do you think I can cut faster than I did? For end mills and V bits I usually set the speed at 100 ipm.Ollie,
You've never heard any of us say 3d carving was fast. Also, the smaller and lighter the machine, the longer it takes. There are shortcuts you'll learn along the way. Did you do a rough cut or just the finish cut?
