Lead Feed




This sets lead-in and lead-out feedrates. The default is 0.5, Router-CIM's standard 50% feedrate for lead-in and lead-out.


Setting the parameter to a number less than 1.0 is a percentage of max feedrate set in the Control Panel.

Setting the parameter to a number greater than 1.0 will give you an exact feedrate.


Setting the Leadfeed to 180 on a cut where the normal feedrate is 600, would allow the feedrate to be slower on the lead in than normal.  Normally the lead in would be 300.  In the code the lead move feedrate would appear on the same line as the lead.

You could also set the Leadfeed in the example above to 0.3 and get the same result as 180 is 30% of 600.
