    Can someone possibly assist my ever-failing memory? I'm sure that I read somewhere in the last couple of weeks or so that someone has developed a F360 plugin that is designed to overcome the "rapids at G1 speed" constraint in the new free version. It either rewrites or intercepts and modifies the code so that expected G0 rapid feeds are restored. However, I dip in and out of various forums and I can't remember where I saw that one. Has anyone else seen that?

    I'm sure that it would not be too difficult to put together a little standalone application that takes gcode, looks for any G1 moves that happen above a given Z height threshold, and modifies them to G0. But if someone has, in effect, done that already, then I'd rather take that route!

    That's great, Clive - many thanks. I'm sure that I saw reference in a forum somewhere as I don't usually browse Github but that's the definitive source, clearly.

    I'll give it a try sometime soon but I'm struggling with some issues with my ET6 controller and MyCNC software at the moment. Basic stuff works fine but it all goes a bit wobbly once I try to do anything outside that. I'm not so interested in the toolchange stuff as separate files aren't a big problem for me with purely manual toolchanging but my current job seems to be spending for ever in slow positioning moves as it's not using G0. That's the one I'd like to fix!

    Maybe I should have looked here first...

    Thanks again, and apologies for the increasingly-flaky memory
