Adding New Tool to Carbide Create 514

Depth of Cut corresponds to Depth under 2D feeds and speeds in Carbide Create.

Please note that the feeds and speeds Amana publishes are for industrial machines — adjust as needed for your machine.

See Intro to CNC - Part 5: Feeds & Speeds - YouTube for concepts on this and see the series #MaterialMonday: #MaterialMonday on YouTube for specifics.

Another consideration is Climb vs. Conventional Milling and tooling engagement — where possible avoid slotting and add geometry and cut as a pocket (Adding geometry to cut as a pocket with a finishing pass ) and consider leaving a roughing clearance and taking a finishing pass.
