It shouldn’t be this hard. I watch everyone else do it with no issues. Tons of YouTube videos not only of the mpcnc but cheap desktop cnc routers doing it with no issues.
I cant for the life of me get a 2d contour path to work.
Things I’ve tried:
- single flute, 2 flute, 3 flute
- .2mm .5mm .75mm 1mm depth of cut
- travel speeds from 300 to 1500mm/min
- built a 2nd machine
I’ve tried every combination of the above. I’ve broken at least $150 worth of bits at this point. I cant get anything to work. Soon as I find a setting that cuts a test part, it fails the next part almost immediately. I get a vibration in the cut that eventually causes the tool to either break or go off path. Its in every tool, every depth of cut, every speed, and every spindle speed. It always vibrates as its cutting. It has to be something that I am doing because It happens on both of my machines now.
I will attempt a video tomorrow, im too frustrated right now to continue tonight. It shouldn’t be this hard.
