Change Defaults when it suits you

You’re not stuck with the settings you make. You can easily change the preferences by entering another value at the prompt or tapping Options. If you wish to set a new Default, simply select the Defaults Info Key and enter the preference.

You don’t have to set every Default, we’ve set the most common ones here at the factory. If you choose, you can use Defaults to:

  • Set spindle speed programming at RPM or Surface Speed
  • Set Feedrate programming for Feedrate per Minute or per Tooth
  • Set step-over percentages for Pockets and Face Mill Events
  • Set Z entry as Plunge, Zig-Zag or Helical
  • Choose between 2 or 3 axis CNC at startup
  • ...and more!

Here we previously set Variable Pecks as the Default. But when we tap Options, we can choose to replace the Default with Fixed or Chip Break Peck for this event.

User Profiles

Your shop is a busy place, often with multiple users and different jobs being swapped in and out on the same machine. With profiles each user can set their own defaults or you can set up profiles for different types of cutting and for different materials.
