Learning FreeCAD Part 3: G-Code And The First Cut

And the results are in! The cut was made at a Feed rate of 100 mm/min (seen in the grbl file as the G Code command F100 after each G1 command) With a max cut depth of 1.5mm with each pass so I was just nibbling away at the material. This was too slow for me so I will be upping the speed by a factor of 4. I was using a zig-zag cut which left some tool marks, will need to experiment with the other types of motion to see the types of finish.
