    Star points

    What are some good settings to get a good crisp star point. Each of my tips are kinda rounded not pointed

    Hi matey.
    May want to re-word your title to be a bit more specific to your needs..
    Most people (whom you may need) will think you're asking about grounding and go straight past this.
    Most call the point of grounding for shielding of cables etc their 'star point'.

    Inside or outside points? Outside are easy, inside you'll have to use a V-bit.

    Which CNC package are you using. There are a few setting to use for sharp points. One that may be rounding your corners is "roll around corners." Turn that off and use straight corners or "D" corners.
