So I have a project where I am doing 8x11 carvings that are 5/8 thick out of ribbon stripe mohagany, each one with a different scenery. I cut these on a Laguna Smartshop 2. It is a 4ftx8ft machine with 8 tool changers. I am just curious to see if how fast I am cutting these out is slow, fast, or about the same as others. Each of these is taking about 8-10 hours. I use a tapered ball nose 3.6 deg tip for the 3D roughing. Tip radius of 1/16, RPM- 16000, Feed rate-90 in/min, stepover- 31%. For the 3D finishing I use a tapered ball nose 6.2 deg tip. Tip radius of .0156, RPM-16000, Feed rate-75, stepover of 10%. I understand adjusting stepover will help with time but I can not lose a lot of definition by increasing that substantially. Do these feed rates and stepovers seem appropriate? Are there any suggestions to help decrease my running time on these without losing definition?
