Really interesting, on my second pierce, when it goes to probe it changed my cutting speed From 130 ipm  to 30 ipm.?

ok my fault will give you new code soon
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

I removed  the f30 line out and it fixed it. Now I just need to figure out why the THC is diving on 2nd pierce.

I have never seen this, as far as i know, the only things that can change the speed are :- Code, Feed Override, MDI

If yours is changing outside these commands then you have a problem I think.

It was the code, I got it fixed it’s good now. The problem I’m running into now is with my THC. The code will run great through the first pierce, but when it picks itself up to go to pierce #2, it only raises up “x” instead of raising up 1”. This throws the Z axis location off in MACH and then drives into material on next cut.

Could it be because I’m using a PP that is designed to run without a THC?

Doubtful, the port won't know a plasma cutter form a mill - its just a port.

After the cut, there should be an M05 which turns the torch off, then a G00 Znn where nn is your clearance height.

The clearance height is relative to the height by your probing routine, if the probing works, then the torch tip should return to clearance height after every cut.

Any chance you can show some code?

When I run my code without the THC inputs active and with just probing, it (probing) works flawlessly. It’s when I activate my THC inputs in Mach then turn my THC on in the plasma sceeenset.

ok this code should work, and restore original feedrate

pierceHeight = 0.5 'enter here a value for wanted pierceheiht

   orgspeed=GetDro(18)    
   code "F30"
   code "G31 Z-1"
   While Ismoving()
   Wend

   code "G00 Z" & GetVar(2002) 'go back to the  probepoint
   While Ismoving()
   Wend

   code "G91 Z" & pierceHeight
   While Ismoving()
   Wend

   code "G92 Z0"
   While Ismoving()
   Wend

   Code "G90"
   Code "F" & orgspeed
