What should the CV settings be for a waterjet machine?

If your cutting really thin stuff at high speeds use "exact stop" to prevent corner rounding.
I use "CV" for all the rest.

Do you have to call up cv mode from the g-code or is it on all the time?

CV mode is set on General Config page but can be overridden by code. If your code has G64 in it then that is CV mode, if your code has G61 then it will be Exact Stop. You can obviously change at will during a run of code by having G61 or G64 in your code at the relevant points.
