I’m burning through scrap like a mad man.
I have a tapered ball nose (TBN) endmill - JERRAY@ CNC 2D and 3D Carving 4.36° Tapered Angle Ball Tip Radius=0.75mm X 1/4" Shank Tungsten Solid Carbide HRC55 with TiAIN Coated Router Bits : Amazon.ca: Industrial & Scientific
I’ve messed with Fusion360 a bunch, my tool of choice for everything else, but the issue is that smaller areas are skipped, as one cannot use the Engrave function since there is parameters like stock to leave.
Finally gave up and struggled through Carbide Create. Following this video Advanced V Carve Inlay Tutorial - YouTube
Attached are my 2 files.
This produced the sloppiest inlay so far, and with about 50% aircutting to boot!
Any tips would be appreciated, I’m clearly missing something. I’m sure Vectric would make this much easier but I’m just not ready to drop 350 bucks on it.
