Neverending G04 pause.
« on: November 08, 2020, 06:32:13 PM »
Just got my ESS/tmc3in1 running on my plasma.  Post processed some code from sheet cam for mach 4.  It strikes and cuts the first feature then hits a Go4 after probing, then sits there.  No more movement. I stopped it and rewound the code,  now it hits the first go4 after probing and hangs, with no first cut.  Any ideas?

Mach4 has 2 ways of doing a dwell G4 P100 (0.1 of a second) and also G4 X1. (1 second dwell).

Try changing the P to an X
