Call plasma mode with gcode?
« on: November 27, 2011, 05:41:50 PM »
Hi all,
Have been a lurker here for a long time. I have been using M3 for awhile now and have been using plasma mode for over 6 months when doing 2.5d, as well as arcs and such. This tends to eliminate the jerky point to point cutting when milling at high feedrates.

Now My question, Is there a way to call plasma mode with Gcode, Using say an M or G call? I have a need to change from CV or exact stop to Plasma and back during some milling. I can use  G61/G64 call from Exact stop to CV but that does not accomplish what I need

thanks

MK

I don't know of any way to turn on the CV plasma mode OTHER than the Genconfig window.

That's what I'm think as well BR549. It would sure make things easier though for me if I can. :)
