I want to try cutting some letters made in Fusion 360 out of MDF material on my DIY CNC machine. Here I try a new milling approach where I use a rough pass with high cutting feedrate and shallow pass depth per pass while leaving stock for the finish. Then I do a finishing pass with slower cutting feedrate all around the letters. The result was not the best but I learned a lot from this little project and I hope you do to.

One thought on “LETTERS with TABS | MDF | Fusion360 | CNC project”
I mill my letters with the front side down, and mill holes for standoffs for the letters. A drawing from fusion file allows drilling backer board with corresponding holes to mount them. I 3D print the standoffs.
