I was wondering if anyone has some good online beginner resources they can point me too for learning about CAM setups. I’m not looking for specific software tutorials, but maybe some lessons on the actual mechanical side of things. Developing tool paths, which tools to use when, that sort of thing. I’m still in assembly now, and will plan on using HD foam to practice on before getting started with MDF and eventually working my way up to hardwoods. If there are software tutorials that provide this sort of background that would be fine too. Whatever I can get my hands on to learn the basics before I dive in and cause chaos.
In addition, I’m going to be ordering a DW660 from amazon and figured I would order some end mills at the same time, can anyone recommend any of the assorted kits on amazon or provide a recommendation on what bits I should be looking to buy? I was considering picking this up:
