It’s 100mmx100mm (roughly).

It took right about 40 minutes, though that’s a problem with the gcode that I’m generating from Easel.

It seems there are no rapids in the exported code. So every movement is at the 200mm/m feed rate that I planned for cutting. Easel is known to give some wonky paths sometimes..in this instance, it will cut one of the little circles on the outside, then traverse the entire 100mm to the other side and cut another circle, then go BACK to the first area and create that triangle around it.

At 200mm/m and 100mm width, the travels alone each take something close to 30 seconds. And there’s dozens of them.

This could be done (with some rapids) in under 10 minutes I’m sure.
