Yesterday I made a simple Name sign with a ¼" Straight bit and a ⅛" downcut. The rough cut took about 2 hours with a ¼" straight bit at 150ipm and the detail pass started off was going to take about 5 hours at 50ipm.
What I noticed here was a lot of wasted time traveling between spots to cut a little then up Z and move all the way over the other side do a small removal and up again move 6" and do the same thing over and over.
Am I missing something in my setup to help eliminate these excess moves?
On another note the carve didn’t come out perfect, the final pass just trimmed around everything and left a small ⅛" gap around everything. Ugh this machine is driving me nuts
