    Calculation of Ending Depth for Force Rotary Tool Use  
    Note: Use either the left side or the right side, based on units of measurement for the Material Thickness. The units you've selected in C3 does not affect the outcome.  
    Then carefully follow the instructions at the bottom of the screen.  
    Material is measured in mm       Material is measured in inches    
    Surface Height     Surface Height  
    Material Thickness, mm     Material Thickness, inches  
    Calculated Ending Depth, ED     Calculated Ending Depth, ED  
    Test     Test  
    * Recommended Ending Depth, ED     * Recommended Ending Depth, ED  
    Instructions:            
    1. Enter Surface Height found under Settings>Machine Settings in C3.    
    2. Enter the thickness of the material to be cut (use left side for mm OR use right side for inches). Do not include the mat.
    3. Click on the Update button below.            
    4. If Test shows "Fail", reduce the Surface Height ( range: 0 - 300).    
    5. Change Surface Height under Settings>Machine Settings to match the Surface Height used above.  
    6. Use the Recommended Ending Depth value under Cut>Layer Settings.    
    7. For Starting Depth under Cut>Layer Settings, use Ending Depth divided by Passes.    
    8. When changing settings, increase Passes before increasing Ending Depth. Increase ED by only 10 at a time.  
    Do not exceed the Calculated Ending Depth shown above.    
                 
    * Because manufacturers will round up material thickness, use the Recommended Ending Depth for the initial  
    test cut to avoid damaging the cutting mat. It assumes the thickness is lower than manufacturer's specs.  
    If you have a caliper, measure the material thickness in several spots and use that measurement    
    in the calculator. Then select a slightly lower ED than the Calculated Ending Depth shown above.
