Machining conditions for various wires

Hello. Makino U3 user here. I have been exclusively using HITACHI HARD BRASS WIRE with Makino’s “technology” settings. If I wanted to try a coated wire like TOPAS H.E.A.T. WIRE, would I need to use different settings for the machining conditions? How would I go about figuring out those settings. I come from a Mill/Lathe world and being able to just use Makino’s settings has been a life saver.

If you are using the technology from the machine, when you input what wire you are using, pick the h setting. You will see bs .012(or .010) and h .012 (or .010) depending on the size of your wire. When you select H, it will give you settings for HEAT wire.
