Trying to cut green foam from lowes, and I keep melting it. I am pretty sure I need to cut faster. (using a 2 flute bit from the router section at Lowes - not ideal, but still.)
I am having a hard time getting the machine to move above 30mm/s from a g-code file. Running at 40 or 100 produces what appears to be the same speed, in a very jerky motion. Here’s a video - you can’t as easily see how jerky it is, but you can definitely hear it chug-chug-chugging. That’s about as fast as I can get it to move, whether the F(xy) is set to 40mm/s or 100mm/s in Estlecam.
Reading through the forums, people have reported cutting foam much faster.
I know I’m blowing the forums up - but definitely learning a lot and making progress! Can someone help me get up to a better foam cutting speed?
