    Hi everyone!
    My machine is built and tested with a pen.

    I just mounted my spindle and ready to try cutting some 1″ and 1/4″ foam board then move onto 1/4″ mdf.

    Would anyone have any recommended settings for cutting that material? I’m going to be using 1/8″ endmill bit.




    I have some good settings on the 2.5d tutorial.



    Awesome, thanks I’ll check that out.

    I did a test today, went slow.

    The dollar store sells 20″x30″x3/16″ foam board which is working nicely for testing. Also picked up some 1″ foam board from hd.

    I think it was asked before about seamed stainless steel tubing. I can confirm that it works well. I have the seam facing the bottom. Paid about 15 bucks for a ten foot length of 1″, .065″wall.

    Thanks so much for designing this cnc machine and making it open source. You can tell a lot of thought went into creating this and the build went together very easy.
