So I use the following format:
Name_bit type_Bitsize_options.file extension
For example a tool path named “Profile” using a 1/4" end mill would be:
This assumes a datum of lower left… If it’s center then I would name it thus:
A 60’ VBit would be something like:
Lettering_VB_60.gcode or Lettering_VB_60_CENTER.gcode.
In some cases I will also include cut depth in case I have a few to accommodate different material thickness:
This way, at a glance, I know exactly what I need in terms of bits, or a check to make sure I have the correct job for the bit loaded or material thickness.
Interested to hear how others name them…
