Is it possible to change cuttingspeed in certain places during a toolpath ?
For example im cuttin squares with a radius of a 100 on the corners atm and the vacuum cant
hold the sheet in place when the radius is routed so i wonder if its possible to slow down the feed speed
just around the radius. in this case im cutting 3mm thick abs sheets at 100mm /sec and a proper speed for the radius corners would be 70mm / sec.

That would be something your router should be able to do.

Enroute does not have the ability to slow down the feed rate on the corners, just like PlastecProfiles11 said  your machine may have that ability.

I have a multicam 3000 as far as i know it only possible to manually slow the feeder on the machine control. since its 4 corners it would be realy hard. Is it possible to make a open contour if you split the path up, and then set slower feed speed on the radius and then faster were its straight. Thing is i dont think the machine would rout it as one path, it would prob stop and lift the tool and then continue again wich would be very time requiering.

Or did you mean that the machine could have some digital setting to achiev this ?

Our multicam did it automatically when we got it.

Oh, then there should be some setting for the multicam to change it. its prob a default setting, but if its fairly easy to change it would be great.
Gona contact our machine supplyer and se it they can help further with this.
Thanx alot for the help
