Is there a way in WoodWOP 5.0 to change the default tool feedrate upon DXF conversion into WoodWOP?

If this can be done globally for all tools....can certain tools come in with a different feedrate?

Thanks in advance!

In Bpp5 the feedrate can be assigned through modifying the conversion rule to include syntax that looks like "p.F_=5"
I believe this function is only available in the DXF-Pro version .

How do you modify the conversion rules in Bpp5? Is it under the pull down menu "Properties" -> "Context"? I assume it's in the INI file....

If it's only possible in DXF-Pro Version then we're out of luck....we don't have that.

The conversion rules only can be modified with the DXF-PRO version.
Maybe you should purchase it. I think the upgrade from DXF-BASIC to DXF-PRO not so expensive...

Where can I find information about DXF-Pro? Is there something to download to look at, like a PDF manual / white pages of the app?

Do I contact Stiles for this?

In the US , Stiles (try Dave Brusseau in Grand Rapids) is your source and should be able to send you the pdf manual to preview . I must say that dxf-pro came with our router (our first) and I found the manual to be daunting. Also, there was not a lot of help available (this forum was not around then). After many readings of the manual and several tests I started to get the hang of it. I do find it indispensible now especially for challenging geometry and one off machinings (we don't use it for boxes) . As far as I can tell, EVERYTHING you can control in Woodwop can be auto controlled through the dxf-pro interface.
If you upgrade I'll be glad to share what I know about daily use.
