So i’ve been doing alot of MDF cutting and my toolpath would eventually wander erratically.
usually on the second pass it loses itself and goes off direction in the X plane.
I have tried to tighten the belt on the X but it doesn’t seem to help after awhile
Right now these are my settings.
i’m using a 2 flute 1/4" bit from mcmaster
cutting rate 20ipm
plunge is 10ipm
depth of cut is 0.1"
my dewalt 611 at 4
i’m also creating toolpaths with rhino cam.
any thoughts on why my tool path won’t stay consistent? I have a feeling its a physical problem. maybe i’m taking off too much material for a belt system? my friends cnc at work cuts at 80ipm with the same depth no problem…
