0.032" ballnose


Just received the 0.032 ballnose tools what are the best standard settings to use in meshcam for these?

This what I have so far…



Overall length: well, 1" is probably fine
Shaft diameter: 0.125"
Flute diameter: 0.0312"
Flute length: 0.0625"
Tool number: 121

The rest depend on the material and you can change them when you make the toolpaths. You might just fill it out based on the material feeds and speeds that you’ll be using most often.
