Re: Sheetcam system requirements/Mac?

System requirements are pretty low. Any computer that is less than 5 years old will be fine. It does depend a bit on the type of work you do. If you do mechanical parts, brackets etc you can use just about any computer capable of running XP or later. If you do complex artistic work it helps to have ...

Wow, even then it managed to move a sheet of 1.2" steel? That's scary!

Re: 6.1.59 Problems

Oops - That last upload included some experimental code so I pulled it. It may be a week or so before I can get that experimental code working.

Re: 6.1.59 Problems

That is technically correct, even though it is not what you want. I'll see what I can do. I'm a little surprised your machine doesn't have a breakaway on the head so if you have a crash like that something cheap lets go and protects the expensive parts. Tip-ups are a nasty fact of life with plasma, ...

Re: Error 183:

I have never seen that error before. Do you get the same error every time you start SheetCam?

Re: Price thc settings

Are you using a THC post? It could be that it is outputting touch-off instructions even though you don't have touch-off on your machine.

Re: Price thc settings

What control software are you using (e.g Mach3)?
Do you have an 'arc ok' signal? if so is it working the right way around? You could get symptoms like that if the arc ok signal is working the wrong way around.

Re: Outside Cut Lead In

That's odd. Could you attach the job file (File->save job) with everything set up so I can take a look. For this application I'd recommend putting everything on one layer and doing an inside offset. SheetCam will automatically detect the inside of the O needs to be cut on the other side. It will als...

Switch to start point mode (Mode->edit start points) then click on the outline where you want the start point to be.

Re: Rotary Table use with Sheetcam and Mach 3

Hmm, I now understand what you want to do. I'm afraid SheetCam won't be able to help you for this. I don't know of any cam packages that will do it.

Re: Thc control

Sorry I wasn't very clear. Most of the THC operation is automatic and does not need to be controlled from the post. The only thing different the THC posts do is the referencing. As you don't want referencing the 'Mach3 plasma' post will do what you want.
