I’ve been working on some furniture designs and how to make my cuts as efficient as possible with regards to time management. I baby-sat my machine last weekend for an 8 hour cut into some 3/4" poplar core plywood. It was a bit much so I’m trying to see what kind of settings people are using for Fusion 360 and/or ground control to speed things up.
Here’s a snippet of my general settings:
- My feedrate was about 40 in/min.
- My cutting bit was 1/4" upcut bit
- My depths per pass was 1/8"
My machine felt slower than normal, but my time estimation on Fusion 360 was about 4.5 hours. Anyone have some settings to recommend or at least a fusion simulation multiplier to better estimate my cut times?
