I’m trying to learn about feedrates and I’m mostly lost. the calculators online seem helpful, but I want to make sure I’m using them correctly. I’m using this calculator
for learning purposes I’m sticking to a 1mm depth
I’m using a 2 tooth 1.5mm bit so my tool diameter is about .06in
Snapmaker original spindle speed is suggested at 12000rpm
using this chip rate chart, I’m going to estimate a 1/16" (close enough to .06?) in hardwood (close enough to bamboo?) would need a chiprate of around .0015ipt
This calculator spits out 36 in/min or 914.4 mm/min
That seems fast but I’m new to this. the only other thing I’ve milled so far was plywood with the same 1.5 mm bit at fusion360’s default 100 mm/min. Are any of my numbers off or did I do something stupid? Any reference values to get an idea of what a normal range might be?
Edit: fixed some decimals
