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.September 14, 2016 at 6:28 am #17707
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. :/September 14, 2016 at 6:49 am #17710
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?September 14, 2016 at 7:28 am #17717
If you look in your gcode for the feedrate change that should show whats wrong.September 14, 2016 at 7:34 am #17718
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:

Wondering if the command that sets “Use G0” moves to false could be causing my issues with slow movements. I have zero G0 rapid commands in my post processed code.
