That is the problem you always have to be there and just after the plunge it start to cut then you have to reverse the program

Yes that is true.

Been trying with the macropump and I cant get it to work :( as I said I am new to VB so it may still be possible. In the mean time it wouldnt take long to edit your code, even if you have 50 plunge moves all you would need to do is open your code in notepad, press Ctrl + F, type in the plunge move (eg if the plunge is G0Z1, type that in) then hit find next. You can then enter a new line below such as M1 then press find next and so on, should only take a minute to do.
Sorry cant be much more help :(

 Hi
Here is a E-mail which I sent Brian is how I think it can be done


 I notice if I use
 lazycam to create a G code on a part with the plasma options feature
 the M3 commend turn on the plasma  before  the z axis does it's plunge
 which i am sure work if a guy has a automatic torch height control but
 if a guy uses without height control you want the torch to turn on
 when the z axis is plunge the same way it work with a flame cutting
 torch Here is what I thought Art. Could you add something in Lazycam
 in the posting option / plasma options where a guy would add in a
 command line before plunge and after plunge a guy could write in the
 cod like  M1 / Ms that way the machine waits for the start button then
 if you push the start button then the torch would start if you had
 them options for before plunge and after plunge it would work for
 plasma with height or with out height control and with a flame cutting
 torch  my old software worked that way and on that part it worked
 alright then it also could be used for dwell feature So let me know
 what you think it sure would be nice
    as always Thanks again for your understanding that you are working
 with not so smart of a guy

Hello Mike,
There is a post processor in Lcam and you are just using the default one... I will write you a simple post file to fix your trouble

Thanks
Brian

Here is a post for you to test. install it into the Mach3 directory and load the post in Lcam under the  "post options"

Also if you would like to edit this more here is the Var list :)

This is a post for Lcam and you need to put it in the mach3 directory. after that you need to select the Post that you would like to use with the Select Post on the Post options dialog. after that you should have the M1's that you wanted in the programs from Lcam

This post processor is exactly what I was looking for to "manually" control my torch until I get THC.    Thanks a bunch!!!     I've been inserting M1's by hand which gets to be a pain on complicated drawings.

Hello everybody.
I'm facing the same problem with achilleas and the DoOEMButton(288) didnt solve the problem.
Any ideas?
