Is there a list of feedrates and depth of cut that MPCNC users have found to be suitable for our machines?
I found a few online for various CNC machines, but they are all across the board from 200 mm/min to 2000 mm/min and 0.6 mm DOC to half bit diameter DOC for soft wood. I’m new to milling and cutting but long familiar with 3D printing, so I’m struggling at finding reasonable starting points.
My typical materials are soft wood and plywood, but I am interested in doing some simple cuts in aluminum plate and acrylic.
I’m assuming that the spindle will affect it. I’m using a Harbor freight trim router, which I assume to be somewhere between a Dremel and Dewalt Palm router in power.
I’m guessing that there are others wondering the same thing. And I’m sure a few of you who know what you are doing.
