Would this type of Radius Mill bit be good for finish pass on 2.5D relief? Or any other from this store?December 7, 2017 at 9:30 am #49251
You do not want a radius mill for carving you are looking for a ball end.December 7, 2017 at 9:50 am #49253
Thank you for answer. Is ball end same as ball nose end mill?
That one is under steel-plate. I am asking for that store because I would order some other bits from them and I am not sure if they have right bits for finish pass for relief.December 7, 2017 at 11:10 am #49255
That will work but it is small and coated. Typically we use 3-4mm diameter and just plain carbide. I think you are over thinking it a bit. Anything will work really you are just looking for least expensive and you don;t want it to take forever. I have no idea how much detail you expect so I can not really give you suggestions on diameter other than that is smaller than usual. It will give higher detail but will have smaller stepover which will take longer, sometimes a lot.
Maybe if you gave us an idea of how large your piece will be and the desired amount of detail. Really high detail and you can just go with a vbit. Although I am just guessing as to what you want to do with it.December 7, 2017 at 12:38 pm #49257
thank you for advice 🙂 . I ordered 4mm and also some v-bits and I will try
