It looks like Mach will do this but could someone verify: can Mach 3 do waterjet ramping based on geometry?

Thanks so much,

There is no set function for doing this, but it can be done with the accel/decel, by setting this to ramp up and down at a slow rate it is possible.

Our current CAMsoft setup looks ahead for corners or circles of a tight diameter and based on the angular criteria it slows to accomodate.  I saw someone else talking about look ahead functionality.  Could you elaborate on this?

Thank you very much,

We do that in the LazyCam for Plasma in circles ... and we could add it for small Arcs.

You could add that to the Galil plugin if you like...
