Cutting points instead of line
« on: December 13, 2017, 01:43:20 PM »
Hello,

I have a plasma CNC and I'm trying to cut a simple path (a square), the problem is that the CNC is cutting points instead of a line.

I'm new using Mach3 but I think that it might be a software configuration problem because in the drawing I see the cut path as a line, the machine follows the path but instead of cutting a line it only makes points.

Hi,
it rather looks like either your plasma is not able to run continously or your machine is inertrupting the cut signal.

Can you put a voltmeter on the cut signal to determine whether its your machine or your plasma.

Could you post the Gcode just to make sure that it is correct?
