Manual Feed

Moving the tool manually is called "manual feed," and you can accomplish this using the feed buttons in VPanel. Note: Manual feed cannot be performed while a cutting operation is in progress.

Table Movement When a Y-axis Feed Button Is Clicked Under the default setting, Y-axis movement assumes a direction of tool movement relative to the object being cut. This means that clicking a Y-axis feed button makes the table move in a direction different from what the arrow indicates.
