Mach4 Plasma move Z+ after cut
« on: January 20, 2020, 01:26:33 AM »

Is there a possibility that the Z axis moves up to a certain value after cutting a contour (eg + 50mm). To be at a sufficient distance from the sheet metal so as not to get caught anywhere. Could you program that into the M5 macro and if so how?

Thank you so much

Yes, you can do it by adding some lines of G-code in the M5 marco or whatever macro you use to turn off your torch. I doo this in Mach3 some time before and I think it works too in Mach4.

Simply add a g-code line to tell Z rise some units, for example 100mm or whatever you want. You can create a new DRO for this propuse too for make quick changes on the fly.

Hope this helps.
