Lead in - Plasma cutting
« on: January 28, 2006, 12:19:09 AM »
Hi Guys,

I'm now using a PlasmaCAM machine that is too old and need replacing, this is not the issue, all i need to know is can Mach do lead in point  or do i have to use another software? Now i'm using Adobe Illustrator to do the artwork and PlasmaCAM software will take care of everything else, I have no idea of other CAM software

  I dont do plasma myself, but many of the guys do. However, Mach3 does not at this time do autoleadins. Most use Sheetcam (inexpensive and very plasma friendly) to do that.

Thanks Art, I downloaded a copy of SheetCam, it sounds promising but i need to get it to run without crashing, i think i need to do a re install of win xp it keeps on asking for a DLL thing, but as a MAC user i have no clue of this error, Maybe a PC using mate will have an idea.

Thanks again.
