OK, you guys are in a time warp...  :o

The G-code has 40,300 mm of travel, so running at 80 mm/min that's 503.75 minutes.

How did you do that in a little over 3 hours!

I think it's because I see a bunch of F2000's in the G-code, but I'm not sure why as it looks like you're using 80 for the raster feed rate. What am I missing here?

At 2000 it would only be 20 minutes, so you are somewhere between these calculations. Rapid Skip Blank perhaps?

I am using 80 for raster, 300 for Vector, 2000 for rapid

I probably have the fast skip blank on. Donít want it to take 500 minutes

Could you zip the G-code up and email to me?

Black magic indeed, T2Laser performs miracles and gets the job done so much faster than possible.
