IPR vs IPM output on drilling cycles in Postbuilder


I am trying to fix one of my post's drilling cycles output. in Postbuilder (NX10.0).


What I would like to do is output all Canned Cycles in IPR (all my regular milling is done in IPM and works fine).


I have changed the F code under "Canned Cycles / Common Parameters" to F_IPR.


It looks like the post is still converting my feed rates to IPM.


I would like to be able for user to enter feed rates in either IPR or IPM in NX and have the post always output IPR. 


Right now it looks like it converts everything to IPM:

If I specify 1.6 IPR in NX - the Postbuilder outputs F600

If I specify 1.6 IPM in NX - the Postbuilder outputs F1.6

In post builder

- "Program and Toolpath" tab

- "Program" tab

- select "Toolpath" -> "Machine control" in the list at the left

- Scroll down (in box on right) to find the "feedrates" item

- click on it

- In the feedrates dialog (you may have to scroll down) look for the item "cycle feed rate mode"

Set to IPM or IPR or "Auto" (auto = feedrate mode is per what is set in NX operation)
