One of the things you have to watch is the step over. Normally .015-.020 is what I use. If you made it .001 than the program would take 15 times longer.


Yes you can start where you left off. Right click on the g-code box and click on "Start from Line". Just make sure you it is gray on the line you want to start on and the spindle is running.
