They both (around here) actually change product all the time, quality goes down each time too. I used to get MDF from HD that was almost as dense as masonite.
This work well using a ballnose bit on a earlier carve just not great on straight cut bits. Hopefully the V-bit will be cleaner.
This was with a ballnose.
I used to use th but to mark a spot at my home position to make it easy to reorient when I had an issue. Which was often lol. Get homing and the triquetra set us asap. You won’t be sorry.
I busted a couple of my Homing switches and just got a order of 20 in. once this carve is done I will get them installed. Triquetra just has to wait on the learning of UGS and time.
Well there it is. I think it turned out damn good even with the blown breaker. Thank you everyone for your help.
Nice work. How did you end up running the toolpaths?
I did the rough with .125 end mill and then finished with .25 60 degree v-bit. still some clean up to do.
You did all that pocketing with .125 bit?
Was going to do it in 3 bits but decided that It could do it in 2 bits just as easy.
How long was the roughing carve.
About 12 hrs
Holy cow!! That’s a hella long roughing pass. Using VCarve?
I agree, even with an 1/8” bit it should have been at best 2 hours. Share your settings and maybe we can help bring your times down.
Plunge Depth .015 Step over 34% feed 50 plunge 20,
.015 DOC? That’s why. With a 1/8" bit, you can easily push 0.05" if not 0.06"
Thanks for the info I will make that change for future cuts.
Finished customer loved it.
That really turned out great. good job
