OHYea there are lots of things I can't do YET.

Tweeakie is my hero on new projects. I just search for cool CNC functions and TRY to make it work with Mach3.

Sometimes yes somtimes no, (;-) TP

HIYA IAN, I always thought it was good form to use the "END" statement for several reasons.

"End closes any files opened with an Open statement and clears all the application's variables. "

YES, NO ??

NOW I see after looking at the functions. It is not strange math but wording on the function. It is accounting for the Finish cut "Depth of Cut".

Also rememebr this is a circle being cut NOT a circular pocket. A G12/13 works great in that senario.

Yall must have different math across the pond. What does Z depth have to do with X Y position calculations ?

Just a tought(;-) TP

YaNVR got you set up(;-)

With Mach3 you cannot use the - directional sign with a #var. You have to solve inside the brackets to make the #var negative.

AND Yes I know that ain't right BUT that is just the way it works in MAch3 .

When you Zero Z it is just reseting Z to zero and is what you want to do.

IF you use RefZ 1 of 2 things happen IF you have a Zhome then Mach3 will run the Z back to the switch and rest the Machine Zero or offsets if you have one.

IF you do not have a Zhome then Mach3 will reset the machine Zero exactly where it is when you pressed the button.

With Plasma work you forget all about any offsets or such. It is a simple 2d process.

Load the Cut File, load the steel, Move to where the point of origin(X0Y0) on the material should be and press  ZeroX ZeroY ZeroZ then Cycle start.

Then Mach3 should run the TOM routine in the Gcode file and set the TOM to zero and move to the pierce height and fire the torch and move Z down to cut height and away you go..

It is the exact same process every time. (;-)

Just a thought(;-) TP

Are there any Canned drill cycles in your program ? Some will turn OFF the CV as part of the canned cycle but FAIL to turn it back on when done.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

I have the Plasma unit here running on the network and I have a routine for it to Call the Cell number and alert me to the end of a program run AND it's file name.

The guys still don't know HOW I know what they are working on(;-).

BUT you have to have net access for it to work.
