Getting prepped to try another hexagonal cut as a comparison. Gathering my settings
No deflection warning. I did make a few little tweaks though. I turned the RPM down to 24000, I just don’t like running the router at full speed, and my understanding is this helps a bit with tool life. Cut depth is quite shallow but feedrate is quite high so hoping it’s not painfully slow. It’s a .75" cut though so … crap 62 passes? Ouch.
Alright attempt #2, turned up the aggressive slider:
Much better. Locked the feedrate at 75 and it gave me a .0603" depth of cut without a deflection warning so that’s 12 passes. phew
