I have this 15 degree v-carve bit that has a 1.5mm flat tip. It’s a great little carving bit that can also handle the carve pocketing on smaller jobs. I like not having to change the tool. In any case, I’m struggling with the settings for this tool. I gave the tool a 1.5mm diameter for the tip, but also specified the 15 degree tip angle. To compensate for the flat spot instead of the sharp tip, I set the tip offset to 2.2mm, which is my best guestimation. The problem is that when this tip plunges to depth, it is carving too much material up higher. For instance, my fonts are too thin with this bit.
I’m looking for some advice so that Estlcam will use the tool properly.
Here are my settings:
