If you haven't seen the original star challenge video you can find it here

I made it to improve the material removal rate quite a bit. For the first star I reached about 120 cm³/min. If you also want to do the star challenge you can find the files here. Just make a video of it and post it in the comments. Doesn't matter how fast you and your machine can do that!
