So I am a total newbie still. I have been doing some carving on some smaller detail pieces and I have been using smaller and smaller bits. i have a .024 for some small pocket stuff. As i want to get smaller than that, I have heard that I can use a v-bit for that. HUH? Really? I thought V-bits were only for V-carving. So my question is how do I set the depth of cut on a V-bit? If I am using A 30 degree bit do I set it as a pocket or a contour? Someone said the V bit wont go to deep enough to go across the dimensions of the carve. Is that what i mean? I guess basically, I want to cut a fine detail toolpath that wont go beyond the boundries I want to engrave.
So lets say I want to cut a shape, that is .01 wide. Can I use a 30 degree bit that is a .125 diameter? I guess I don’t understand. I try to set that toolpath in Create and the simulation appears that I am not cutting anything. Doesn’t even show the toolpath or movement.
Sorry for the long question, I feel I have made it to confusing.
