I think it would be great to go over some basics of 3d materials. A lot of times when I set up a carve I feel like the carve times are very extensive. What do other members do to mitigate the time for each carve. I know a lot of it has to do with feed times and step over but what are some good baselines to follow when setting up a 3d file?
From our experience we have some ways of dealing with this problem:
1. The most costing solution
-CNC with servo drivers, that will reduce your time without losing quality, this will save you around 30% .
2. If you relief is not too high, you can exclude roughing, but in this case you need to use a tapered ballnose, 8 or 10 mm diameter. You can increase your step (we use only 9% step), but in this case you will lose your quality.
So the best way is the most expensive.
