GCode is Complicated
G-Wizard Makes it Easy

confused by extremely low feedrates for wood

Hi,

 

I just started the g-wizard trial and would really like to make use of it but i’m pretty confused by some of the numbers it outputs. For example, here is a screenshot of the output for a 0.5″ 2 flute normal carbide endmill in hard wood, 0.25 cut depth + 0.25 cut width:

 

I’m very new to cnc machining in general, but 6.836IPM in wood with a cutter this size just doesn’t sound like something you would ever run? The chipload it chose  is just minuscule. Can someone please explain what g-wizard is doing here? Thanks!

It’s because the Tortoise-Hare slider is set to “Full Tortoise.”  That Fine Finish setting causes the absolute slowest tolerable feedrate to be used.  Crank it to the right to increase feedrates.
