I would be interested.
Yes, 60 and 90
90 and 60 are mostly like the most common two bits used
I hope this means that you are close to releasing a revision to easel with vcarving capabilities. That would make a lot of us very happy
Me too please. Have a huge project coming up and it's all in easel. V carve would be perfect for it.
@Zach_Kaplan - I hope you don't intend to tie us down to specific angles. It has been my experience that v-bits (like standard end mills) aren't precise. A 90 degree bit may actually measure 89 or 91 degrees.
This is a great how-to for determining the exact angle of the bit you are using -
i would be more then interested.
In order of preference.... 90, 60, 30. Just tried the in some pine for a photo carve.. realizing that pine is the worst thing to try an hold any fine details in. Gonna try it again in acrylic then some nice wood.
I meant which do you prefer.
I prefer the 90 the most, at least that's what I design in the most.
Bother 60 and 90.
BUT, PLEASE MAKE IT SO YOU CAN DEFINE A FLAT TIP AS MOST OFF THE SHELF ROUTER V BITS HAVE A FLAT TIP OF ABOUT 0.03"
I prefer the 60 almost always
Almost exclusively use my 60
Would welcome the addition to Easel... Great to see a great product evolving to an amazing product.
Maybe we can add a zerodegree one?Call it a v bit just to mess with people even though the technical term is endmill. JK!I would say maybe put all the bits you (@Zach_Kaplan) sell on the site into a library? Or just put in a blank field to fill in the angle and tip flatness. The math is slightly complex but relatively straight forward.
from Oct 15 to Aug 17...this is a pretty long and yet exciting thread!
any news about the v-bit support?
I just ordered my X carve 1000 and I think that that improvement would be great. I am an cnc machinist and I can hardly wait to get mine running.
@PhilJohnson how are you measuring the flatness of a given bit? Is it changing on you over time as you use it more?
What do you mean by flatness to mean the flat tip? In vcarve I keep my 90 degree vivat listed as an engraving bit with a .03 inch tip and it carves perfect. In the year-and-a-half to two years of using it it has not changed. The smaller 20 degrees and 30 degrees eighth inch engraving bits have a very delicate tip that can break especially the 20-degree one. Those are .1 mm flat tips. Those are great for Engraving acrylic but I have used them to vcarve and 3D carve very tiny things
Did that help @Zach_Kaplan?
