Having an expensive learning experience tonight, first time using some Kingcolor HDPE. V-Carving driving me nuts. Need some advice on 2 signs I was attempting to make (both used 60 degree v bit).
On the ‘kissing booth’ sign:
My file was showing over 20,000 lines of gcode, seems crazy to me
There was 3 passes to carve the text - the last of which went way deeper than I edited (0.10 is what i wanted)
On the ‘S’ & ‘G’ it did some extra notch thing that jacked them all up - what is this about?
On my AT&T stadium sign:
The first pass on the text was exactly what i wanted, then it did it again and made it thicker and deeper! Why is this?
The stadium part I pocketed with a .250 square end mill, why did it start so deep in the middle?
Thanks for all the help!!
