 IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Be sure to use a piece of material that is at LEAST 8x8 inches and at MORE THAN 1/8" thick
  • Be sure that if you use clamps that you leave at least 7 inches between the clamps so the end mill does not come in contact with them
  • Place a mark on your work material that is EXACTLY in the center - this is where you will zero your X and Y axis
  • Be sure you are using a 1/8" (3mm) end mill in your spindle
  • The final cut size for the GCode file below is 6x6 inches and will cut 1/8" into the material (measured from the top surface)
  • Be sure to set your Z zero, or the tip of the end mill, to the surface of the work material
