Last line feed speed

Postby Dave Burtchell » Tue, Jan 10 2006, 6:30PM

Howdy,

I'm using 4.86. I have Last line feed speed set to 300. Outline tool feed speed is 800. I've been getting a lot of parts with the last line feed speed of 800. Anyone else seeing this?

Dave

Hi Dave,

Go into your Control Nesting SETTINGS and check to see what the \"Min Feed Rate\" (Located two down from \"Last line feed speed\" )is. I'm guessing that it says 800. This setting will be the slowest feed allowed to be posted in cnc program.

Dave,

Try updating to the latest version 4.87 and see if you are still seeing the issue. I had posted a program through 4.87 and it looked good. If you still see the issue, please sent me the file that you are nesting along with the following files from your machine:

C:\\RollingNest\\machine.ini
C:\\RollingNest\\tools.thm
C:\\system\\toolman.thm

Ryan

Thanks to you and your team for the 4.90 fix of the \"last line feed speed\" problem. Would you please revisit it again and look at the next to last line? I'm seeing 800 ipm showing up there instead of the last line.

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave,

I've tried to reproduce the situation that you are explaining, but have been unable to do so. The only thing that I might add, I've been testing in V4.91, this may be the difference. If you still see the issue after updating to v4.91, I would like to see the following files:

- .hsf (cabinet file) or .esa (Assembly file)
- .twd file that you are using from ecab
- .cnc file that you've generated at CNC machine
- C:\\RollingNest\\machine.ini (From Thermwood Controller)
- C:\\RollingNest\\tools.thm (From Thermwood Controller)
- C:\\System\\Toolman.thm (From Thermwood Controller)
