Run the first tool paths with the Sharpie
Prepare another waste board on top with T-nut
Try 2D cutting from a online picture, with 1/8" endmill and 1/4" for profile.
Use 90 degree v-bit for the letters and filled with color wood filler.
Try 3D machining with 1/8" flat endmill and 1/8" ball nose endmill.
So far, using Artcam, for generating tool path and G-code. It looks OK for start,
but the finishing of the cutting are not good in detail.
Further plan will be;
find or design a pattern that I can use for testing different material, tools and settings ( including feed, stepover, plunge, and speed rate, as I am very new to CNC, and have rare experience on all these issures)
find a proper clamp design for holding different size of material.
practice for sanding, painting to make the result as ready for sale condition.
Hope learning from the community and improve my skill, any comments are welcome.
