Carvey RPM

Is there a way to control the spindle speed on the Carvey. It is melting my acrylic plastic.


Acrylic plastic come as two types, cheap and available and more expensive/less available.
The cheap one are extruded and have a lower melting point. The more expensive kind is cast, and machine better.

If you melt acrylic when carving and/or reduce spindle speed / increase feed rate.
Use single flute end mills, straight may be fine.

Yes there is. You can go into the Machine Inspector and change the spindle speed (RPM) in the Console input with “Sxxxxx” (ie: S9000 for 9000rpm). Just note it takes a few moves/cuts before the change takes place. Seems Easel send commands to the Carvey in batches and the speed only changes once that batch of commands is complete, usually only a couple moments.

Use at your own risk.
