  • default startup

    I recently returned from hexagons 201 class and noticed that upon file > New the start up has the prefit & retract parameters

    set for every new program without the use of a seed program. I have also seen this at other locations. I am using 2015.1

    and would like to set this as my default if possible, what am I missing?

    Thanks All!

    Motion tab
    Enter your favorite values
    Press "Default" button - this saves those as your new defaults.
    Be aware that this runs contrary to every other software in the known civilized universe where pressing Default loads default settings, not saves them.

      You can go into your Settings Editor/Connect/Find PrehitDistance and set your values there. So every time you make a new program it will automatically go by your new values. RetractDistance is right below it.
