It should, but maybe your plunges are too short to notice the difference. Try adding a Fx.xx to the plunge lines of code to the speed you want. You'll have to add one to the following lines as well for the cutting speed.

i'm using artcam by the way, i tried a feedrate test by putting the feedrate 200mm/sec and plunge rate 1000mm/sec and it seems that they are almost just the same.

Do you mean 1000mm/min? Or is your machine plunging into the work at 1 meter per second? :eek:

How much travel does the Z-axis have? It's probably too short to even get up to 1000 mmm/min.

Really! I set 1000mm/sec. ! Uhm, what do you mean by travel?

How far does it move?
