Just wondering what the recommended maximum length of time the xcarve should run before giving it a break. I am not really worried about the controller but the dewalt router more than anything. I have a project I need to do and estimated roughing pass is 1110 minutes. Can’t really do it in stages because it’s a 3D carving.
The longest I’ve had so far was 6 hours. As long as the brushes are good I think you’ll be okay. Let us know how it turns out.
It will be a little bit before I run it but I will definitely post on here the results. I ran the small version of my project last weekend. It took 9 hours. I may wait until it cools down a bit more then set it up.
I’ve run it for about 22 hours successfully (that was a two stage carve so there was a break at the 5 hour mark to change bits.
11hrs was my longest run no issues
well guys , I was putting my 1000 to test it’s limits . well it just finished a 11" x 9" high details carve .
