General Mach Discussion / THC-300 sheet cam help!!!!
« on: October 16, 2008, 06:39:17 PM »
Hello all,

I am running mach3 on a 3 axis plasma table using a  floating head switch on the z-axis.   For the mach display i am using  the  THC-300  screen set that is offered by cambell designs.   

For a test file I drew a simple  square and generated the g-code using  sheet cam with the THC-300 Post processor

Can someone with this similar setup help me clarify a few questions.

1.  When I change any of the values in the "settings" tab,  there is no effect    i.e no cut height change, no Peirce height change.    DO these fields work ????????????

2.  Do people set properties such as  Peirce height , Peirce delay , and cut height  thought sheet cam or do u  use the "settings" tab

thanks for any help in advance !!!!!

Make sure you go to views and choose which screenset you would like Mach to use(thc-300xx).  I encountered the same thing.  After installing the THC-300 screenset and you re-start, everything is blank.

wlarry  -=- that was my issue   thanks for the info !!!

thanks for your reply.

I am using a Hypertherm Powermax 1000  so I guess table grounding is not a big issue.

I will ground the table to the same electrical ground as the machine with a 8 AWG copper wire  hopefully this will be sufficent !!

Hello all,

I am in there process of installing a cambell designs  "THC-300"   Torch height controller. 

 In the install PDF  it states that the plasma table should be earth grounded with a ground rod.

  Does everyone have there tables grounded to EARTH  using this method????
