These machines run G code so pretty much any software should work as long as there is a grbl post processor.
One thing to remember with running less than 50% radial width of cut, is chip thinning. Fusion does not account for this with the exception of 2d facing if I’m correct.
These calcs are great to find actual chip thickness and mrr, plus recommendations.
Unless the machine has mods, imo, 0.100 is plenty deep for adaptive docs. And I try to push at least a 30 thou opt to take the heat away. There are also certain ways to setup part and toolpath orientations to maximize ridgidity in the cut directions. Little more advanced and every machine is different.
As far as testing cut formulas goes…Richard is right on the money. No surprise there
For adaptive - start with 0.001 chipload minimum and a light doc. Increase feed and router speed until you are comfortable, then start increasing the doc. There are also times where huge depth of cuts aren’t the most efficient. The most important thing is being smart with chipload.
Most of the time i’ll find the limits of my cutter and back off 15%. If you are chasing maximum metal removal then use a three flute, if you want reliability use a single.
