I am getting ready to mill a statue for the first time with SC8 and a Kuka robot arm. One thing still greatly concerns me, and that is the final retraction speed that the arm uses to return home once the milling operation is completed, it is VERY fast; my arm is old and I don't want it running that fast. I've attached a screenshot from SC8 that shows where to make some speed adjustments...but I am personally very convinced that the answer is not in this menu. The only other place I can think of is in the Kuka post-processor. Thanks in advance for any replies!

I am no expert with robots in SprutCAM, but I have done a quick check and I am pretty sure that you are very close with using that particular dialogue.
The move that you are referring to would be a 'rapid' move within SprutCAM. On a CNC machine tool the speed of this move (G0) would usually be controlled by the CNC control itself.
If you scroll up in that feedrate dropdown list you will see that there is a 'Rapid feed' option. This is normally used by SprutCAM for calculating an accurate 'Machining time', but, for robots it appears that this value is used to create the rapid movement speed.
So, I would suggest that you try altering the 'Rapid feed' value to see if this solves the problem?
