So, I got thrown into figuring out how our company x-carve works with no knowledge of CNC, like at all.
My issue is that I have a 12"x12"x0.063" sheet of 6061 aluminum that I’m trying to make a small(38.1mm dia.) circle with a hole cut in it but, I keep running into errors where it’ll either not cut all the way or the bit will break. I’ve been using the 1/8" fishtails with 2F from inventables but those are apparently rather fragile. The only other bits that we have are either too small(1/32), expensive($50), or is a 3F(destiny tools viper).
Honestly, any help would be appreciated. I’ve tried both the recommended cut settings and custom ones(0.1mm/0.2mm/0.5mm). At this point, I’m out of ideas and figured posting on the forums couldn’t hurt.
