Parallel Finishing

A project log for Minamil: a minimal CNC mill. And friends.

Each axis: $̶5̶$8 motor+lead screw, 3x LM6UU, 3x 6mm x 100mm rod, 1/8in hardboard, PC case screws

A couple logs back concluded with:

Next up: is Z hysteresis small enough to run paths with varying Z vs a succession of descending waterline paths?

(i.e. parallel finishing)

Yes.

Parallel Finishing Works
sufficiently small Z backlash/hysteresis allows Z-varying tool paths

The second pocket has other issues, but this isn't about that.
