Having issues with feed rates

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 01:01:49 GMT

I'm trying to set a feed rate for a PCB job which will run on a Shapeoko 3 machine, and I'm having no luck. Whenever I create a CNC job with a different feed rate value it always seems to move at the same uber slow speed. I've tried changing application settings, project settings, individual layer settings. I don't know if there's something obvious I'm missing... If it helps I'm making a board which is about 40mmx60mm, and using a 0.8mm bit on the Shapeoko 3. Whenever I export my gcode I append the .nc extension, and then run it using Carbide Motion. Also if this is in the wrong section, I'm sorry. I don't know which section this should go under.
