Calculate Your Cut Depths and Cut Widths with Cut Optimizer

How do you decide your Cut Width and Cut Depth for CNC machining? It can be purely guesswork unless you have a tool like G-Wizard which can actually find optimal values for these important cutting parameters. Using Cut Optimizer, you can find the optimal Cut Depth or Cut Width while holding the other constant.

CADCAM Wizards to Optimize Your CAM Software's G-Code

How can I easily answer all the questions my CAM software needs to know to cut a part? It needs to know choice of tool, cut width, cut depth, feeds, and speeds for both roughing and finishing. And how do I make sure I am giving the best possible answers to the CAM program for those questions?

Answering those questions is what CADCAM Wizards do.
