axis are stopping during cutting process?
« on: January 21, 2012, 03:06:08 PM »
Why my plasmatable axis are stopping for a moment during the cutting process when M15 (THC off) is read from G-code? If M15 is erased from G-code, cutting is continuous.

Then why do you have M15 in your code?

Whoops! M15 macro is: "Deactivatesignal(output2)"

It swiches off automatic arc height control before leadout or in case it is better to cut in manual THC mode.

If the pause is only during the line with the macro then it is because Mach is reading the macro and acting on it so there will be a momentary pause, not much you can do about that.
You could try putting it on the same line as code but whether that would help I dont know, likely not.

It may be possible for you to instead utilise the M110/M10 commands instead.  It may not be working in the present download but should be soon in the development version.
