HDU speeds and feeds

Post by extremesignman » Thu Oct 04, 2018 10:20 pm

Looking to buy a XXL unit for our sign shop but I can't find anything regarding V Carving HDU material. I Assume one would use the soft wood profile but not sure. Also not sure how the HDU dust would affect the guides and bearings. Any one here use HDU material on this CNC? Thanks.

Use dust collection so that the dust won't be an issue.

There's a bit about cutting foam on the wiki: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Materials
