What exactly are you needing the help on and do you have a link to the manual for the proma?

OK! I have most everything working now except that mach will not start the plasma, I have the relay wired into the g540 at output 1 pin 17 and I can push the torch on the screen in mach and it works but just doesn't on a part. Maybe this is a problem in the Gcode since I only have the demo sheetcam right now.  Can someone look at the code a tell me if this is so. just did a simple square to try the machine out
