Ok the feed is changing fine in that xml, although I changed to the standard screenset as I dont have the screenset you have. The feedrate in Mach defaults to 6 at startup but any call from code should change it to what is called. You can easily test that out by going to MDI and typing F50 and then pressing enter, the feedrate DRO should now read 50.  If its not then it could be the DRO on your screenset is not correct.

That makes me feel better, Thanks.

Are you ready for my next issue. I have 2 seats of the BobCad program. Computer #1 I have had no issues with setting a g-code. Please review the g-code I get from computer #2.

Both computers started with the design name. Now #2 starts with **** and places them all through the post.  I have not tried to run this yet.

Normally I use computer #2 for design and code work.

Any thoughts?

I do have 1 problem additional........Yesterday I was running a design that was done on computer #2.  I set the g-code on #1.  The design consists of 2 animals and a tree on a fire pit. I have 4 separate sides. 3 of the 4 ran perfect. The 4th ran everything except 1 of the animals.  I separated the animal and also re-posted as it was.  The posting went fine until I I clicked on compute tool path.  The tool path showed only the pierce.  To get the thing done I had to go to computer #2, do the design up to the compute tool path, save to a thumb drive, go to computer #1 and post.  Then it worked.

I have never had this happen before and it is only on this one animal.

Ring any bells with you?
