Ok got the better of it I think, did as above but added G92Z0 after the G31 line in the G Code and it seemed to work.
So next I went back to the original G code with m124 only in it and went back to my original macro but I added
Code"92z0" after the G31 move in the code. It worked but went way too high on the Z for some reason.

So next I replaced the
Code"G92Z0" line with
SetOemDRO(802,0)
And it worked perfectly.

Cut two flanges out as a test, each flange had 6 x G31 moves in it and worked flawlessly. Why the G92 worked in code but not macro I have no idea but it is working so I am happy as that seems to be it more or less working as intended now.

Just tried again to make sure :
1/4"Alu, bit slow but still worked great :)

Well hopefully that is all the issues solved, might even try the wee computer again seeing as it fits nicely inside the cabinet.

Little circles, big circles and everything. Nice Hood!

Aye and lots of smoke circles too, need to get the fans sorted and dispense with the filter mask.

Plasma envy strikes again!!!

Nice work Hood. Glad to see you cleared the hurdles and made it to the finish line.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Well still working so I am calling it a sorted ::)
Making a base for a seat on a boat today, 3 retangles 400mm x 300mm and two right angle triangles 200 x 400. Shoved a half sheet of 5mm Alu on the Plasma, used Terry shape wizard (modified to suit my machine) had the rectangles and triangles cut out in less time than it would have taken me to measure and mark let alone cut with the saw :D

Ordered a fan today so hopefully I will be fume free next week.

Its probably the no1 accessory to have in a fab-shop, makes so many things possible that were either a PITA or just not do-able before.

Glad its working well now, must get that extract working though ;)
