How can I eliminate the gaps around my advanced v carve inlay?
I tried my first advanced v carve inlays yesterday. Both have gaps around the inlay. At first I tried a cheap 10.2 degree Spetool .25 mm tapered ball nose bit. When I got gaps around the inlay, I thought it might be the cheap bit not really being the angle it claimed or maybe being a ball nose (although virtually a point) was the issue. I re-generated the tool paths using a white side 60 degree v bit and still got gaps.
10.2 degree spetool:
60 degree whiteside:
For the pocket I used start 0" and max depth 0.2". For the inlay I used start depth of 1.9" and max 2.0"
Both were super tight to set in pocket. The gaps do not appear to be in a particular direction, e.g., high and right.
I would appreciate your thoughts on how to eliminated the gaps. Thanks!
