Is there a setting or someway to increase the move rate when going from cut to cut. I finally got my MPCNC up and running but am noticing that with my slow feed rate there is a lot of time spent moving from cut to cut. I am just wondering if there is an easy way to increase the rate of those moves versus the actual cutting moves.
Hi, I don’t think so, i think it could be a good option to add to Estlcam. At the beginning I edited my gcode to do that but it is not a good solution, i wasted time so now i prefer launch the job on my vicious and wait
@vicious1 Thanks !! i put my maximum Z speed and works go really faster (travel speed not as slow as working speed), if it could be separate for XY and Z it would be perfect but for the moment I’m Happy !!
Awesome. Yeah hopefully we can get an update to input separate values, I am not sure why the firmware doesn’t seem to be limiting it correctly. I need to test that when I get a chance. I usually run my rapids pretty slow so I didn’t notice it for a few months.
I just found that and was going to post it so thanks for confirming my thought. If I understand the value correctly I multiply the desired mm/s by 60 to get the feed rate. (20 mm/s x 60 = 1200).
Didier, I just opened my G code in notepad, searched for 1200, and replaced my Z only moves with a different value to get XY moves at a different rapid rate than the Z moves. Took me all of 2 minutes to go through my program and do this. Was actually pretty easy.
@RAGII Thanks, I was thinking to do that but my idea is to avoid to edit gcode, for serial works or moments when you just want to click and play Actually you are right this is the way (for those who want to do that check the box “repeat” under F section). But my travel moves are 2700mm/min (45mm/s) (my Z max speed) and it is quite good for this moment. And so you are right for the value to write, it is mm/min.
