Hi I’m trying to figure out if I’m being too easy or rough on my CNC with my feeds, speeds, and depth settings. These are my configurations/settings:
CNC: Shapeoko 3 XXL
Material: Oak plywood
Router: Makita router on it’s highest setting
Router Bit: .25", 4 flute HSS flat endmill
Feed Rate: 30in/min
Plunge Rate: 15in/min
Depth Per Pass: .1"
I feel pretty confident about most of those settings because they have worked well since I’ve been using it. The one I’m most interested in is my depth of cut. I’m wondering if I can be a bit more aggressive with it. However, if you think I need to back off some, I’d like to know that as well.
