I am still trying to make my first project. I finally was able to convert the image to SVG. After I mapped the toolpaths, it seems that the whole project will take over 4 hours. That doesn’t seem right, or does it?
I attached the logo and the carbide create file. I think I may be using the wrong tool selection on the toolpath. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The toolpaths FLAG, EAGLE OUTLINE and EAGLE INSIDE are very deep for a 30 deg. The PATH and OUTLINE paths calls for .500", but the bit only has .440" cutting depth to work with.
If you want a line “that wide”, you’d be way better off using a fatter bit and not going as deep, say a 60 deg and about 1/3 as deep. A fatter bit will also have a way better DOC, so it all goes way faster.
A 30 deg would normally be used to V Carve very fine details, for example a very small piece of text.
Nice project, can’t wait to see the finished product. It looks like you need to select the center for the D in BRIGADE for the “Words inside Circle” operation. The simulations show that D as a large hole without the center island.
Hopefully you guys get to see this, I don’t want to make a new post for this question. I was doing the final tunning of the file and somehow the letters EA in the “Eagle Brigade” are not showing up. It doesnt matter what I try (with my limited knowledge), they just dont show. Can someone help me with this.
I attached the file below flag2.c2d (812 KB)
