Making panels, carving text

Hi @Jaap,

Whichever settings were working for you on the SainSmart CNC + associated tool, will work as is on the Shapeoko as a starting point (because the cutting edge of the tool does not care which machine moves it around :smiley: ), but the difference will be that you will then be able to cut faster/deeper with the Shapeoko of course, and the precision will also likely be better.

There are many threads on the forum about cutting acrylic (tl;dr: use single flute cutters and feed fast), and a few on v-carving acrylic, here’s one where we discussed settings:

With a 1/8" 30° vbit you will need to dial down the depth and feedrate (again, what you were using with your previous CNC should be a safe starting point)
