The shallower the cut, the narrower the tool. If you’re using an engraving tool and the generated path isn’t cutting part of your .svg file, try reducing the engraving cut depth.
Advanced Feeds and Speeds for Brass
Warning: These settings are for advanced users. Before using any of the information provided here, you must read the section above on fixturing your material, and you must have a way of precisely measuring your material thickness (we recommend digital calipers). The feeds and speeds specified here are more aggressive (and thus faster), and improperly fixtured material can be knocked loose and damage itself and your machine. Additionally, the material surface needs to be completely flat, or else 1/32", 1/64", and 1/100" end mills will break when they encounter part of the material that is sticking up.
Lastly, if you’re using tools smaller than 1/16", you must make sure that the tool is removing the correct amount of material on the first pass, or else your tool may cut too deep and break. All subsequent passes will be correct, but the first pass can be affected by anomalies like tape thickness, burrs on the material edges, and material warping, all of which can increase the height of the material surface, causing the tool to cut too deep.

Plunge rate: 1.575 in/min (40 mm/min)
Spindle speed: 12,000 RPM
Max Pass Depth: 0.003" – 0.020" (0.08 mm - 0.5 mm). Keep in mind the engraving tool has a variable width, depending on your “engraving cut depth.” The deeper the cut, the wider the tool. The shallower the cut, the narrower the tool. If you’re using an engraving tool and the generated path isn’t cutting part of your .svg file, try reducing the engraving cut depth.
Advanced Feeds and Speeds
Warning: These settings are for advanced users. Before using any of the information provided here, you must read the section above on fixturing your material. The feeds and speeds specified here are more aggressive (and thus faster and more fun), and improperly fixtured material can be knocked loose and damage itself and your machine.
