Looks like F360 outputs wrong cutting feedrate?

(Raymond Yorizzo) #1

I created a 2D contour to cut at 28 in/min and noticed that my Shapeoko 3 was cutting at 10 in/min.

The same project includes a pocket cut, also set to 28 in/min and it actually cuts at the correct speed.

I know almost nothing about g-code but it looks like the job starts at 25 in/min and then switches to 10 in/min.

Am I setting something wrong in F360?

Here’s a piece of the G-code:

Are you using any ramping entries? Did you set the ramp feedrate, or use the default? F360 has a feedrate for plunge, ramp, entry, exit, during “staydown”, and cut - it’s easy to miss one.

I have all of the feedrates in the tool tab set to 28 in/min. I didn’t see a staydown federate. Maybe I’m missing something.

I just created a new contour operation and now it works properly. I saved the old one and will dig into it later.
Thanks for the quick reply mikep.

There are 5 on that page, a “no engagement feedrate” on the “linking” page (sometimes, depends on the path) There are a couple others tucked in there if I remember.
