So, I think I successfully laid out and defined my first cutter paths in Vcarve. That being said, I would like to have someone look at them to make sure I followed the SOP correctly before loading them into the CNC router. I had to do a few modifications to the vectors that weren’t covered in the SOP, and I think I’m in good shape, but having a set of experienced eyes go over it would be welcomed. Is there anyone available sometime next week to do this.
Also, one question I have is regarding the amount of cutting I have to do relative to a 1/4", 2-fluet end mill. I’m not sure of the linear equivalent, but lets just say it’s probably equal to about 20 of the stools. Is there any protocol in regard to tool wear? I think I have a 1/4" 4 flute end mill and I’m wondering if this would be less wear on the tool or make it viable to ramp the feed rate.
Lastly, is there anything that would prevent me from loading a full 4x8 sheet of plywood on the CNC router? After playing around with the nesting, I can’t really get things laid out to less than 3/4 of a sheet of plywood.
