Just getting into Carbide Create, and I’ve got some funky lettering I’m trying to get correct in a piece of wood. The bit I’m using is a 3.175mm 60* vee bit, so I’ve entered 3.175mm and 30* (half) into the ‘edit library’ tools section.
Now, for some very small lettering, everything looks correct, with very sharp edges.
With this large, funky lettering (maybe 1/4" to 3/8" across at its thickest), Carbide Create does not cut all the way down and out. It goes down a few millimeters, and then etches the spidercracks out to the edges…and then never cuts further down. So now I’ve got skinny letters with some cuts out to the corners of each letter, and it looks goofy.
Stock thickness was at 25.4mm, I changed to 50.8mm and the ‘show simulation’ still made it look goofy.
If I use one of the stock tools (#301 or #302), it looks PERFECT in the simulation. If I swap back to my 1/8" bit, it looks goofy again (and doesn’t cut right).
Is this a configuration issue on my end (hopefully), or some sort of weird bug?
