So as posted Can anyone recommend a shaping end mill with a built in chamfer? I am looking to cut a rectangle out of 3/16 aluminum with a 1/4" bit but instead of changing bits and doing a second pass to create a chamfer on the edge I am hoping to find a single bit that can do both. Any ideas?
Probably right, I did find some for foam and hardwood but not aluminum
If you are using Aspire, it can use your endmill to make a chamfer. Pretty sure you can do the same in Fusion 360
carbide Vbit for wood works just fine.
Thanks Allen, that sounds interesting. Not sure how that would work unless you had a 5 axis.
I Was looking for something like this but it is for wodd and foam,. I might try one and see.
Shane, that is what I have been using but it requires a bit change, This is another bit I am looking at.
Aspire and Vcarve Pro have a gadget that shapes a chamfer the same way it would make any 3D cut, using a small ball nose tool.
OK thanks for that, it makes more sense. I am however trying to find a bit that will cut through 3/16 aluminum and create a bevel at the same time in one pass
