HDME Help please

I am working on some Christmas gifts and thought about signs in plastic HDME. I am carving them but don’t get a nice clean edge. I have changed the bit to a newer one thinking it was that.

I have attached pictures for u to see.

you are in need of some speed, try increasing your feed rate by 25% and decrease spindle speed if possible?

feed = 72 in/min
plunge = 24 in/min
depth = .032 in

What would you suggest?

Thanks,
