Shouldn't Take That Long

Good evening. Getting back into XCarve and Easel after some time off. I have setup a simple shape to cut the outline of a serving tray. I want it to cut the outline in a single pass using a 1/4" bit. But when I go to simulate the run, it takes multiple loops with an estimated time of 48 minutes. Something is setup wrong.

Depth per pass in cut settings is set to 0.015" so its taking 25 passes.
If you want to cut in a single pass youd need to increase the depth per pass to equal to or greater than your material thickness

Thank you Seth. I could of swore I had the depth of cut set at .375 in the cut settings. It does work now.

I think you did type 0.375 but it was in mm mode at that time because 0.375mm/25.4 =0.01476"
So just be aware of the mm vs in setting :slight_smile: but its fixed now so you’re good :+1:

Well, that clears up that mystery. Thank you again.
