Awesome, curious question. You are just wanting to plasma cut with your cnc?

Alright, that's all i am using mine for too. I am to the point now where I need to figure out how to start and stop the plasma arc.

you're way ahead of me. I think there is a button on the main screen (Run Program), that lets you start and stop the plasma.  It's kinda towards the center of the screen.

do you know how to increase the speed of the motors. I think the sample G-Code program is for a router so somewhere in the code is the speed factor.

"motor tuning" tab under "config". sorry i was misleading before when i said ports and pins. but it is under config tab and motor tuning. And you can do all the x and y axis individually

I need help with the Mach3 program.  I have drawn and converted to dxf file.  I then load into LazyCam and produce G-Code.  When i load the code, it shows the proper dimensions on the DRO.  I have changed all units of measure to mm. This is where I am lost, when I start the program, it cuts larger than the original dimensions (i.e. 8mm becomes 22mm). I have calibrated the motors, plugging in 25.4mm for x and y axis and the 18.75mm resulting from movement of the x/y axis. I have no idea why it makes the cuts larger than the drawings.  Any ideas?


 I had a reply from one of the mediators to load the xml file, but i can't find the email.
