Hi All - I have a newbie issues I can’t figure out, help is appreciated
I’m trying to surface my waste board. I made sure to only install MDF within the reach of a 1" surfacing bit. However, even when I zero my machine so that it should be surfacing the whole area, I’m still getting a 10mm edge on the front and left. The MDF is installed 95mm (3-3/4") from the left and right beam.
In Carbide Create:
Create a square with dimensions 837mm wide, 433mm height. This is the exact size of my waste board. I had to set a radius, so I set it to 0.1.
I added contour toolpath
I added a new tool, diameter 1", flute length 0.25", 3 flutes
I overrode the feed rate to 145mm based on notes on the wiki about feed rate, this was double the suggested value…
I set the start depth to 0mm and max depth to 4mm
I have tried using an Inside and No Offset toolpath.
No matter what I do I can seam to force it to surface the full board.
@Mikep - What I mean is I was going to end up surfacing the steel frame at the front. Which was actual a result of a miscalculation when I started surfacing, I went too deep. My waste board was going to be below the frame. Anyway, problem solved I replaced the first piece of my wasteboard.
