General Mach Discussion / help with torch height
« on: June 08, 2016, 12:37:17 PM »
I am very new to CNC and trying to learn how to use mach software to run my plasma table. I have been able to cut parts after some trial and error, lots of reading and tutorials.
For some reason, my torch is moving off it's path and sparking about 2 inches off the table when it goes from cutting one part to the next. It cuts the first piece fine and then moves to it's next position in the cut sequence, then it raises about 2 inches and tries to spark. Sometimes it does not move to the next part in the cut sequence but goes way off course and tries to spark several inches off the table. I have all new tip, nozzle, cap etc. so that's not the problem.
I feel like it's something simple but I don't now what a lot of the controls in mach 3 actually do or mean. I have been reading and watching tutorials but just can't figure it out. I need to get it running. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
