Lots to learn going from a Feather Cut to CNC. Initial set up was a little challenging. Stuff like for motor how many phases and degrees per step. Then figuring out what type of lead screw. Metric or Standard and threads per distance.

Took some time to figure out what the software needed or what the descriptions ment. Placed some scraps on the table like TS mention above. The first piece came out looking like a bow tie pasta instead of a partial span stab. Search around the software and found keft option. Changed the keft value until I got a correct thickness part down to .00xmm. Got that six or more tries. Trailing edge is ending up .7 MM instead of tapering to nothing. Got to figure that out. Next will be trying out a tapered planform DLG tail. Making progess anyways!
