I wasn’t sure where to post this as all search results I’ve seen for cutting vinyl refer to issues with drag knife… not what I am using…
I need suggestions for cut quality in vinyl planks. Why vinyl flooring planks? They come in multiple finishes, waterproof and have a backing already attached (great for coasters).
My machine specs, mpcnc skrpro1.2 with tft screen, estlecam and dewalt660. Controls all work fine, no issues there.
Did a test cut of vinyl flooring plank for a coaster. Overall, I’m happy with it, but noticed a few areas to improve. The bottom of the letters have rather obvious tool marks. I had to speed up the feed to keep chips from sticking to the cuts… maybe need a very shallow cut at slower feed to clean up bottom? Any suggestions to get smoother bottom?
Also, on the edge cutout the top half is good, but the bottom portion is a little further out. It is almost like the finishing cut didn’t happen all the way down. It occurs at the same distance down as the holding tabs. Is there something I am missing as far as finishing cut and holding tabs?
