You need a plasma post processor. Try the 'Mach3 plasma' post.

Re: Token

License tokens can only be used once. If you send me a PM with the token code I'll get a copy of the license sent to you.

That makes sense. I'll stick it in the 'needs to be done' list.

Re: What bugs you the most in SheetCam?

Oh you asked for it this time Les lol. No worries. I would have been disappointed if you hadn't said anything. I'm mostly looking for stuff that's quick to implent so that rules out most of these suggestions. However I'll see what I can do. 1) Default start point placement should be such that machi...

Re: What bugs you the most in SheetCam?

Sorry, I thought I replied to this. It should only ask you when you are closing SheetCam. I'm not sure if it is a good idea to remove this. It gives you a last chance to change your mind on the name. Removing it could also catch out people who now expect this behaviour.

Re: Import Drawing Issue - Black Screen

In the window that allows you to select the drawing there is an option for the file type. It is usually just above the 'open' button.

Re: Nesting mode

Number of pierces will be in the next release. Just a note about this info. It shows the cut distance and number of pierces for the currently displayed toolpaths. For instance in most modes, only the current part has it's tool paths shown so the cut distance is for just that part. Simulation and nes...

Re: Nesting mode

Excellent idea. How about number of pierces? Heh. I should have thought of that. I don't like saying but I don't actually see it showing on my status bar after the update I've done some experimentation and it looks like the update didn't work properly. I managed to replicate the issue on my XP test...

What bugs you the most in SheetCam?

I'm working on getting ready for the new stable release and I'm looking for anything that needs cleaning up. I'm looking for bugs, awkward functionality or missing features. Basically anything that interferes with your workflow.

Re: Import Drawing Issue - Black Screen

When you open the drawing make sure the file type is set correctly. For instance if your drawing is a dxf and you try to load it with teh file type set to Excellon you will get a blank screen.
