So on the main carbide website it lists that the nomad can cut soft metals to a depth of .25 in. What I don’t understand is why there is a limit like that. If you can cut one pass, why wouldn’t you be able to cut the next pass?
Since meshcam forces you to cut widths that are at least 10% larger than the bit, there shouldn’t be problems with rubbing or something from prior passes, not that there should be anyway, but still.
I know because of relatively low RPM, when compared to industrial machines, it means that feedrate would have to be low to keep the bit deflection down. So maybe having the bit out past a quarter inch the machine would have to go so slow for it to not be worth it maybe?
So anyway why the limit?
