I used a 60V bit to try and make a sample address sign. Some lines didn’t go deep enough, and it is rough looking. What bit should I be using? And how do I clean it up?
I added a video to my reply over on FB, hopefully seeing the visual at the end with the 2 color HDPE material, adjusting the top layer thickness and the 2 different angle V bits I showed helps explain what my initial comment meant.
but the answer to clean up the carve and show more of the Blue below is to use a steeper angle V bit And/OR a material with a thinner top layer. . .

(the workpiece is higher near the front of the CNC and lower nearer the rear) And here’s How I’d fix that: Surface the wasteboard OR you can try this shimming method:
