We Real World Tested 30+ materials, Plastics, Woods and Metals.
This is really exciting and should open up the options for all of us in exploring new materials for our Projects.
From Acrylic to Wax and Cork to Limestone We have Feeds and Speeds numbers for both the Nomad 883 and the Shapeoko3.
On the Shapeoko 3 we used the #201 and #202 3 flute .25" endmill, 100% engagement,
For the Nomad 883 testing we used the #101 and #102 .125" 2 flute Carbide endmills 100% engagement.
These numbers will work for roughing and waterline cutting toolpaths.
These aren’t aggressive promotional numbers, and these aren’t super conservative, they work very well- and were refined to give optimal efficiency and the best surface finish possible.
More tool sizes for each machine will be added, but for now please enjoy the range of materials we have tested.
The Speeds and Feeds charts can be found on the Documents page here:
