Improve cut quality on small "X" slot

Postby designshop » Tue Jun 05, 2018 12:46 am

Hi everyone. I'm looking for for help from you experts! We're working on a new design for a 3D puzzle. The design will be a hummingbird. See attached pictures.

The problem - our X slots are getting burned out -- resulting in a loose fit. They need to have ~.10" slots. See attached image.

I was thinking we could break the "X" up into 2 or more distinct shapes and cut them at different times (to allow the first cut to cool). Any other ideas?

Notes: the best cut is 45 amp shielded; 137 Volts; .05 cut height, .04 Kerf
