Thread: raster carving.. direction and step over

  1. #1

    Default raster carving.. direction and step over

    Does the cw cut in both directions during raster carving ?

    Can someone tell me what the actual step over size is in the different "quality settings" for the raster carving ?

    Many thanks

    The machine does cut in both directions on rasters.

    For the 1/16" carving bit, the step sizes are roughly:
    Draft -> 0.010"
    Normal -> 0.008"
    Best -> 0.005"

    Thanks for the quick info.
    Am I right in thinking, from your reply, that the machine adjusts the step size to suit the bit size/profile ?
    If this is the case, does it also do this after a bit change within a project, if this is required ?

    John,
    Remember that the bit is only the 1/16" carving bit for raster. Vector will take the other bits. When you have a raster to cut, however, there is no option for what bit to use.

    Thanks Bob. All is now clear to this non-machine owner

    Well, for the time being, anyway.
