I’m carving a dish design on my S3, but I’m having trouble with smoothness of the cut. Since this is a geometric concave design, it’s not really something I can easily sand. Is it some kind of tool chatter? Is it a problem with my bit? Do I need to tighten/loosen something?
This is carved in a cherry wood scrap, but pine and poplar have all had similar results. I’m using a #101 bit (.125 ball cutter), but it’s roughed out beforehand. My software is a little unconventional for this group, but I use VCarve Pro to generate gcode, and CncJS to communicate with the machine.
