First cut photos and info. Looking for feedback, suggestions:
3.175 6061 aluminum plate
Single flute upcut 3.0mm carbide endmill (SMW3D)
Small amount of WD40 for lube
100mm/min feed rate
10mm/min plunge rate
12,000 rpm spindle
109% Overcut (Sketchucam)
30% Step Over
The object is a 25mm cube with 2 4mm and 2 5mm holes.
Holes appear VERY close to 4 and 5mm (measured with caliber)
Final results had the Y-axis of the cube measured at 24.82mm and the Y-axis at 24.17mm
I did have the bit diameter set to 3.175mm. So, I am sure this probably messed up my cut some, right? The bit says it has a 3mm cut.
Thoughts, input, suggestions all welcomed
