Cut times different between Carbide software

Why when I create a pocket in carbide create it will give me one time on the toolpath but once it is loaded into motion the time increases.

I’m afraid that seems to be the way it is, and I’ve never understood why - although I’m sure someone on here will know.

I seem to recall it might have something to do with the ‘rapid movements’ not being included in the calculations, but maybe I dreamt that…


Welcome to cc and cm. I have had the opposite experience with cc over estimates and cm shows close. I think cm shows cut time but does not include rapid moves time at all nor bit changing time for multiple tools.
