General Mach Discussion / PLEASE HELP WITH PLASMA
« on: June 24, 2017, 04:00:48 AM »
Hey guys I am building a 5x10 plasma table... I want to know more about the wiring of the plasma to the thc and B.O.B for mach3.

SH-HC30 Chinese THC.
Hyptherm 45xp with machine torch and cpc output.
Chinese 5 axis B.O.B

Currently unsure of the software. ???

Asking for a diagram or some sort of instruction on how to do this.
I seen this video and i am grateful for the man who made it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ-SLFUMMEQ
Any advice or input is welcome here! Cheers.

Hey guys hope your still here!

In the works of building a new 5x10 plasma table ...

Here's what I got.

CNC electronics components using nema 23 steppers geared.
Rack and pinion drive.
Cheap THC (https://www.amazon.ca/ToAuTo-Automat...ght+controller)
Hyptherm 45xp (https://store.weldersource.com/p-426...ge-088123.aspx)

Im sure ill have some questions when it comes to slapping everything together just trying to see if i missed anything or if someone has had bad experience with any of the products above.

A HUUUUUUUGGGGGEEEEEE thanks to you Rich all i needed was someone to tell me that it could be configured linear and i was able to figure it out from there thanks so much man happy easter ! Take care


I am working with my cnc machine to come up with a rotary axis. I am currently stuck on working with the A axis to have it turn accuratly.

My setup
Cnc home build 3 Axis (2 steppers driving x)
Aspire for toolpaths
Mach3 mill
Using the CNC Wrapper to convert X values to A values.
Im Sure there is something i am doing wrong.

Here is a Video and the G codes


Im Back !!! i am trying to add a rotary axis,,, i cannot get the axis to move as the A , only the X and is there some sort of settings to change this to be a rotary axis in mach 3?  here is a video to help explain.

I think it will work the BEC is rated for over 25v , does the 5v for the b.o.b go into the p14 ?Where does the ground go from the BEC ?
