iModela wax cutting speed?

Post by techrock » Fri Sep 12, 2014 7:14 pm


I don't have access to a windows machine at the moment so I can't try the estimation software. Does anybody know what kind of speeds are possible when cutting wax?

For reference, what kind of processing time would I be looking at if I were trying to mill this in wax? ... ndex.html/

Thanks in advance

I would suggest a good end mill would be able to cut one side in a few hours in wax. It depends if you want to change tool for the roughing/finishing paths.
If you just use a 1mm ball end tool, then the roughing would take a lot longer, but you can just walk away and leave it cutting.

Hope this helps
