I’ve attached a simple G-code program that cuts a 14″ square 1″ deep in two passes with some tabs.
Every movement that is not a cut goes very slow. I’ve tried every setting I can think of to speed it up.
I’m using Fusion 360. Cutting Foam. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Here are my settings in Fusion:

Your surface speed maybe? It is set to 23mm/s. (654 feet per min)
I am not familiar at all with 360 but that one stuck out to me.Benjamin ShawParticipantSeptember 14, 2016 at 6:28 amPost count: 115
Unfortunately, I think the surface speed is referring to the speed of the tool rotating. It’s directly tied to the spindle speed, both of which are irrelevant since I have no speed controls other than manual. :/Benjamin ShawParticipantSeptember 14, 2016 at 6:49 amPost count: 115
I should also add that if I simulate the cuts in Fusion 360, the cutter moves quickly in between cuts. Does this indicate an issue with Repetier settings?JasonParticipantSeptember 14, 2016 at 7:28 amPost count: 330
If you look in your gcode for the feedrate change that should show whats wrong.Benjamin ShawParticipantSeptember 14, 2016 at 7:34 amPost count: 115
Digging into that now. I’m seeing that it is set to F2000.
Also, I’m guessing this value is coming from the custom post processor I am using to get the code out of Fusion. Looking at the code, it has the following section in it that I think sets the feed rate:
Also, Here is a screenshot of the resulting G-code:
