I have pre-ordered a snapmaker 2 and it will be arriving est. in June. I’m currently looking at what this machine will be capable of. I have read elsewhere saying that a user attempted milling aluminum and had bent their housing. I was wondering- since Tin has a much lower hardness on the Mohs scale. Anyone have insight into this idea?
While advertising the Snapmaker 2.0, it has been confirmed that it can machine JADE!! Interestingly enough, Jade is at a 6 on the Mohs Hardness scale. That’s pretty hard!! If I were to look up aluminum on the same mohs scale, it currently sits at a 2.75 hardness.
If I am correct in saying this, jade is more hard than aluminum. If this were to be correct, I would be able to machine any material that is lower than a 6.0 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. This goes without saying that there would be a great need for COOLING!
