Simulating non cutting rapid moves-we need a rapid feed pot

Is there any plan to incorporate a rapid feed pot in simulation so you can slow down rapid to watch moves clearer, same as the speed function works for cutting???

                        (this would also match the real machine)

 

I know we can slow down velocity and acceleration and so on in sim which works well,

but then the time is inaccurate..

Hello,

 

thanks for putting that requirement in the forum. We discuss that already, but no solution yet available. Only the one slider which effect rapid and cutting together. We will add that into our planning.

Thank you Thomas, that would be great if you guys can add this.
The present slider doesnt effect the rapid at all.
If you single step back and forth changing slider only cutting moves are affected?
