I’m attempting to make a zero clearance insert for my tablesaw and I’m running into an issue.
The part I’m making will be 3/4" thick in the middle, with a 9/16" wide x 1/2" deep rabbet joint around the outside. Hopefully that makes sense.
The problem I have is that Estlcam wants to cut the rabbet in a linear tool path, moving up in Z space to avoid the island on every pass, which makes makes my program like an hour long, when it could easily be done in less than half the time.
I’m not using the 3D machine processes because that calculated an even longer toolpath. I feel like there is a solution to this problem and I’m just overlooking it. Any ideas?
