Running Cutting Tests
Test cutting can be performed after making the tool, speed, force, and acceleration settings to ensure that the
selected cutting conditions actually produce the desired cutting results. Check how far the blade cuts into the
media and how the corners are being cut. If the cutting results are not satisfactory, adjust the various settings and
repeat the test cutting until the optimal settings are achieved.
Here, you can either cut one test pattern based on the current values, or do three tests with ±1 values added.
