With the new CM software while running the job I want to know how the 10% increase in feed rate works.
So another words If my tool speed rate is 40" pm and I want to increase it to 50 50 ft pm .how many clicks would that be..

I believe each percentage value is applied to the base value, so:

110% == 44ipm
120% == 48ipm
130% == 52ipm, &c.

Please note that it's persistent and if you load a new, faster file, you will want to reset this.

Sorry But none of that made any sense to me.
If the feed rate on a bit in a tool path I am running is 40 IPM and I click the 10% up button 2 times what has that done to the feed rate of that tool path.

It's basic math.

Each time you press the +10% button you add ten percent to the adjustment --- first press is 100 + 10 == 110%, second press is 100 + 10 + 10 == 120%

Why is this kind of information not on there web site.
FYI i called Carbide early this week about the feed rate and had to leave message and nobody called me back.
Do you use the probe,

Press the button to reduce the feed rate as many times as you pressed it to increase it to get back to where you started --- it's persistent, so you need to revert back to 100% if you don't want the modified speed.

Sorry no one called. Best to e-mail in to support@carbide3d.com

Yes, I use the Probe for jobs which warrant it. We have docs on it at: https://docs.carbide3d.com/assembly/tou ... /userguide

If you have a problem with using it, please send in a step-by-step discussion of how you are having difficulty and we'll try to help.

Well I have look at that link several times you provided and there is nothing in it about changing the feed rate while a cut file is running.
I think the lack of of a information on all the features of the CM4 other than probing is to bad.
But that just my opinion.

Feed rate ought to be documented at: https://docs.carbide3d.com/assembly/car ... userguide/ but isn't.

I'll see what we can do to update that.
