Great, thanks for the advice.
After 12 hours of messing around with trial and error in Fusion 360 I seem to have found my machines limits for the wood I’m using, although I’m still struggling to judge how to balance the relationship between “depth of cut” and “cutting feedrate”. Is it better to do for deeper cuts at a slower speed or shallow cuts at a faster speed? 🙂
As for Fusion – I’m loving it so far. A few dodgy tutorials on YouTube sent me down a bad direction to start with, but I’m starting to understand it much better now. I love being able to define various strategies for different parts of the model.
Unfortunately, my better half has banned me from playing with it until I get the dust issue sorted, so I guess everything is on hold for a while 🙂
