Compression bit configuration

I have an Amana Tool 46017-K I'm working with and I'm also using the tool as defined by them in the tool library. LOVE THAT !

https://www.amanatool.com/46017-k-cnc-solid-carbide-spektratm-extreme-tool-life-coated-compression-s...

 

The upcut tip portion of the bit 7mm according to the dimension on the Amana Tool website. I'm going to be working with 3/4" plywood (ApplePly) which has nice faces on both sides.

 

I have read that when using a compression bit to do contours where you will also be through cutting, you should always plunge "at least as deep as the upcut section" (7mm in my case) so the top edge is mostly interacting with the downcut section.

Where do I specify this behavior in the the milling operation?
Is there any general guidance on if I should use the specific length of the upcut or that plus some additional tolerance. I was thinking of adding 0.1mm but not sure if its necessary.

 

Thanks!

You can define that in your Passes tab (preferred) under the "Multiple Depths Cut", or in the Heights tab (less preferred) by setting your Top height to "Model Bottom + 7.1mm offset"

Hi @seth.madore,

Thanks for the quick reply. Would I specify that as my Max Roughing Stepdown, like so:

Yep, but double check your heights in Simulation and adjust as needed.
