Help with WOC best value to use
I buy HSMAdvisor some time ago, and i always used WOC with pocket/slot checked, most of my cuts are plain cuts, pockets, profiles and 3d finish passes. It always worked but i fell i'm not using it right... Even on a pocket toolpath a stepover of 40% is a WOC of 40% de tool diameter, expect on the first line where tool engages at 100% with the stock.
My question is: shoud i use the stepover value there instead of pocket option (full bit diameter)? Working most with wood and some aluminium.
Also most of my cuts calculations exceeded the max axis speed of 2000mm/m the hsmadvisor limits to the 2000 correctly, but spindle RPMs are still the same even if calculated speed is 3000 or 5000 mm/m. Should i ajust RPMs to match the 2000mm/m or leave it like calculated?
