I think I've debugged the problem back to sheetcam. If you put the feedrate at 2 ips, the F command in gcode is 120. I've looked at older gcode files and the F command is the same as the feedrate. I can't figure out what changed... Using version 5.0.1 on Windows XP on a non-networked machine. I can't figure out if a sheetcam upgrade is a good idea or not either. Any thoughts?

gcode F rates are always inches/min (or m/min for metric) so if you're specifiying inches/sec that's why it's 60 times higher in the gcode.


2 IPS is the same thing as 120 IPM
