Hi Guys , here is a basic CONVERSATIONAL shapes generator for plasma cutters. It came about from a page I did for the guys here in the shop so they could do simple basic shapes without programming or CAM. They love it SO I thought maybe it wou d be handy for you.

It does square type ( square, retangle, straight lines) and cirlce type(circles, ovals) and has an inside hole burner as well.

To use select the function button and fill in the required function data(LH side). Then fill in the required CUT parameters(RH side) for your machine to match the material.

NOW it does NOT account for the Kerf Width so just allow for it in the input values as needed.

You can just exit OR post the new Gcode.

As normal use caution until you verify it for yourself(;-)

Have fun, (;-) TP

Only issue is it needs to be formatted to a smaller screen size, It does not fit on my screen.

IT is the standard 1024x768 screen size (;-)

Here is an updated version to use. I forgot that there are several different version of the TOM that mach users USE. Now you have the option of G28.1, G31, or NONE. AND you can set the switch offset for your setup. Just like the big boys.

I fixed it with machscreen for my needs, but...
My laptop screen claims it is set to 1366 x 768
for some reason I could not see the bottom of your wizard
I have a love/hate relationship with these computers. ;->
Thanks Terry

The first thing i notice is it says it is a corrupt file when i open it with machscreen
then I move all the bottom items up so they fit on my screen then save it and it works fine

Like the wizard - simple, easy to use. Any way to make it do inside or outside lead-ins?
