Speed set to 1200 mm/min but machine is running much much slower. Why?

I am milling a contour on the attached file. I have the speed set to 1200 mm/min but the machine is moving much much slower (maybe 100 mm/min). I tried adaptive clearing and it too runs really slow. The other milling processes are working fine.

 

What am I missing here?

Thank you for your help.

Bill

If you turn on points you can see the toolpath is made up of thousands of tiny line segments and they are all very wavy.

this is because of the Mesh geometry you are trying to machine.

 

Your controller will be struggling with all the tiny direction changes.

 

If you instead sketch a 395mm diameter circle and use that for the 2D contour you get perfectly smooth circles

I don't see an adaptive toolpath in your file but turning on smoothing will help a lot there:

Thank you for getting back to me. I deleted the Adaptive clearing process and instead used Parallel as Parallel was much faster. Fusion estimated 38 hour for adaptive and it took less than 2 hours using parallel. Maybe using smoothing would have helped that?.?.

Thank you for the suggestion, I will try the 395 mm circle.
