As a new to Snapmaker 2.0 ( received my A350 in last December ) I’ve tested out some CNC works but haven’t been blown away with the performance of Luban. I truly hope the company will put more effort into the software. I guess it’s not easy to design a program which would perform fantastically in all three disciplines. Thanks to this forum I have looked closely on what the Company Vectric could offer and I’ve now been testing out their VCarve Desktop trial software which is designed for hobbyists and small CNC machines. After doing some stupid mistakes with the setup I have finally ( or SM A350 ) produced a nice looking result. I was wondering if someone in this forum have more experience of using VCarve Desktop
and Snapmaker and what your thoughts are ? Are they a good match worth spending over 300 USD?
For this work I used Pawlovia wood ( 18mm thick ) which is nice to CNC. Dimensions: 200mm x 300mm.
I made two files : one rough pass with Flat end mill / double flute 3.175mm and the final pass with V-bit.
All in all it took some 26 hours to finish. With some small adjustments, I’m sure it can be made faster.
I hope my post can help some of you who is in the same situation as I am wondering how to improve the CNC result with Snapmaker. Cheers
