I’m new here, I’ve done some searches and I’m either missing something or in the wrong place. But I got a new onefinity cnc, just set it up in my shop and ready for wood. I have a nice enclosure and solid carbide tips and wondering if anyone could speak to me about cutting graphite?
Hey all thank you for the awesome detail. I guess to be more specific - I know there will be a learning curve when it comes to understanding feeds and speeds and differences between material.
I mainly want to insure that I am doing this all as safe as possible, for my own good and for my fancy new machine. knowing graphite is conductive and messy, Ive constructed an enclosure for the cnc with ventilation and a vacuum with filter. But I am most curious about any other specific measures or precautions you would use to prepare and maintain a unit that cuts graphite. Likewise are there are any of you who have cut graphite on this specific onefinity machine in the past?
I remember at least one forum member who has done this and posted about it - I can’t find the discussion but perhaps he or others can add to the conversation. Also, if not already known, Winston Moy at Carbide 3D has several videos on the topic of milling graphite.
