i have the free, non-commercial version of Fusion360, so it limits the feed rates, sadly. when i have the money, i intend to get VcarvePro, and that should be faster.Nice, Travis. Why so slow cutting, though? I know you're just cutting air and testing but you'll be cutting faster than that, right?
i think what you are hearing is resonance through the machine from the steppers, perhaps. really a lot of different noises going on, too. like the spindle turning, spindle fan, VFD fan, computer fan, furnace. i am fortunate the air-compressor didn't start and jump the heck out of me.Hey buddy, what's the "rumble" type noise at 1:28 onwards till about 1:40 ?
I have my doubts that a 1/8" bit will cut through 3/4" ply in one pass. Also, if you go too slow you won't be making chips, you'll be making dust and likely charred dust, at that.but i don't know about the 1/8" solid-carbide bit
the hole cuts need to be a 1/8", as a 1/4" is too big. but i can change the perimeter cut to a 1/4" end-mill, though i will have to change a few things in Fusion360. while i am there, i will look for a way to step the cut down.I have my doubts that a 1/8" bit will cut through 3/4" ply in one pass.
Right click on your setup and choose Edit. From there you should see 9 circles (there are actually 27 but I typically set Z zero in the center of the work piece). Choose where you want to set your Z zero. The Edit opens to the Setup tab but you may have to click on Stock and back to Setup to see the 9 circles. I always use the nomenclature of zt for Z zero on top and zs for Z zero on the spoilboard. My file names also include that so I can see at a glance where to set Z zero when I load the job. No mistakes this way.not sure how to fix that.
