Have been running some test pieces. Basic 2D cutout of 4mm Aluminum. Have a 2.2kw water cooled spindle etc, nice clean cuts, eats through it with ease.
However, noticed there is a very slight stepping/taper/angle to the sides of the cut. Always going further out from cut piece further down the cut we go. So the base of the cutout piece is about 0.2-0.3mm further out than the outline at the top of the cutout.
Have it set to 1mm steps.
Wondering if this is something machine calibration related, or simply have selected a wrong option in the CAM process when selecting the steps down through the material.
Simulating it in Fusion, it doesn’t seem like there should be a taper though. So maybe a calibration aspect of the machine.
