I’m trying to take advantage of the 2D Adaptive feature in Fusion 360 on my Nomad 883 Pro.
Material is Aluminum 6061, and I’m using the 1/8" Carbide Endmill.
I’ve tried to use G-Wizard to calc out the settings, but it seems that they don’t translate well when it comes to 2D Adaptive. I’m lost on how G-Wizard can help.
Here are some of the settings that I think translate:
Spindle: 9200 RPM
Feedrate: 8 IPM
Plunge Feedrate 1 IPM
…but other posts have indicated much higher feedrates when using 2D Adaptive. What feedrate should I use?
On another post someone mentioned this should be set to 40% of diameter:
.125 * .4 = 0.05
I am confused has to how this works out to depth of cut.
For the part I am trying to face the top of, if I leave “Multiple Depths” unchecked, it will be taking a pass around .375" depth.
If I check “Multiple Depths” and set it to the standard Feeds&Speeds setting, it would be .010". I’m not clear on how adaptive would be any better here as I wouldn’t be doing a deep cut.
tl;dr Does anyone have some tested settings for facing 6061 aluminum with a 1/8" Endmill using 2D Adaptive in Fusion 360?
