I have been doing some simple cuts/pockets with Estlcam and got some decent results. As you can see I the attached picture I found two issues.
First, the base of the pocket is not getting completely cleared. I am using a 1/8 straight flush bit with 80% stepover. Should I change that number or try something else. Most of the pocket is cleaned out so I am not sure why part of it is not.
Second, there is some unevenness around some curves, especially the inside edge. Is the machine skipping or getting too much uncleared material? Is it running too fast or slow? Again, most of the curves are good, it’s just a couple small sections.
There are some frayed parts but I have not sanded yet and will look good when it’s done.
