    I need this but for an engraving I will be doing. Ive looked and I’m having a hard time finding these. On the cheap anyway. Could I simply take a regular V-Bit and file down a very small portion of the bottom? Only .03 sould not be an issue right?

    The v bit needs the point, it is how you get sharp edged carvings.

    You can still carve flat bottomed things with it or set up 2 tool paths.

    You can see a few of my videos and others of how this is done. Some Old Guy Coding just did an amazing carve video that shows lots of lat spot in his carves, issues he had and how he solved them.

    You could also just use a flat bit and do a 3D cut.

    Thats what I thought. I think the program specifying a “flat bottom” bit really threw me off.
