I found out my "Scale factor" setting in toolpath summary is not working for negative (lower/faster) numbers.
When I enter higher number than 1 result is immediately calculated, but my CNC seems faster and every time I try to get lower result than estimated time with scale factor one it doesn't calculate.
I tried negative numbers (-2.0), decimals 0.5 with both dot and with coma (0,8/0..
If I remember training it should be entered as decimal let's say "0.8"
I have win 10 and aspire 8.5.
Is this normal behavior or is it bug in the SW?
Thanks for useful advice in advance.
If your machine is going faster than the programmed speeds, I'm afraid it is a bug with your machine not the software. Normally no machine which is obeying the feedrates instructed by the software will be quite as fast as the times we calculate as we make no allowance for acceleration / deceleration on the machine, so with a time factor of 1.0 and the rapid feed rates set correctly, the machine should always take longer to actually cut the part as it will have to perform some acceleration / deceleration.
