Rapid Positioning

Next, double-click on the ‘Rapid Positioning’ node under the ‘Control Description’ node and select the ‘General’ tab. Copy all the settings shown in the graphic below.

Next, select the ‘Axis feed together’ tab. Make sure the ‘Rapid positioning maintains a straight line’ checkbox is unchecked. This option tells the post-processor that the machine axis do not all rapid at the same rate so a rapid positioning move will not necessarily maintain a straight line.

Make sure to review what is displayed when you allow the cursor to hover over a specific input field or control as well as what is in the information area at the bottom of the interface as you move through the various input fields and controls.
