V-bit etching width calculator
February 10, 2012 08:33PM
I was chatting with a friend on Skype a few days ago trying to explain how to calculate the actual width a V bit will etch based on your depth of cut. Since a V bit does not go all the way to a point you have to keep the actual width of the tip in mind as well. I whipped up this Excel file that will calculate the etching with based on tool geometry and cutting depth.

Hi Jeff,

I am very interested about the V bit cut width calculate, I deduced the form of calculate this and I take you xls as reference. For more easy, I have programmed a plugin for pcb-gcode 3.5.2.11, it is attached in this post.

For errors, comments, etc, please tell me!.

Sorry for my written english.

Jose L.

Zulfqar,

Put vbitcalc.plugin in the plugins folder.
Replace plugins/plugin_loader.h with the one attached to this message.

Let me know if it works or not.

Regards,
JJ

I made a web-based V-bit etching width calculator.
I also included a brief tutorial on how the calculation works, in case you're interested.
