Watch in 4K as Tyson Moore puts his acrylic CNC cutting and LED light sign making skills to test with Amana Tool®’s 1/8” and 1/4” diameter Solid Carbide Spektra™ Extreme Tool Life Coated Up-Cut Router Bits and Mini Insert Spoilboard Router Bit.
Tyson cuts the 1/16”, 1/8” and 1/4" thick acrylic on his Carbide 3D Shapeoko CNC machine. The up-cut bits pull the chips up evacuating them from the cut where a down-cut bit forces the acrylic chips down and can potentially melt them together. Evacuating the chips better reduces any excess friction caused by the chips resulting in less of a chance of melting the acrylic. Top edge will stay crisp with an up-cut bit in acrylic.
