Sorry I may not be using the right terminology here. I am doing through cuts and what I would like to do is to make a shallower cut on the first pass. I have found doing a very shallow cut the first pass reduces the chipping a lot. I have been cheating it by just setting my zero slightly above the work piece but I think it would be more consistent do it when making the tool paths and just set it at the zero.vicious1KeymasterJuly 18, 2016 at 6:51 pmPost count: 2657
I don’t think there is an easy way except to make 2 cuts, like the estlcam walk through I just put up yesterday. Start the first cut from zero (the top of your material) but set the depth of cut very shallow, then on your second cut start it at the previous cut height and go down from there.
I can’t think of any way to do it from and stl (3D cut) other than taking shallow passes.
