Re: New Feature Suggestions - Scale and DXF Text

This may not work for you but it's probably worth a shot.... try https://librecad.org/ I've struggled a bit with it, but that is because I have autocad to hand and have been using it for 20+ years now....

Re: Rotary plasma

Its a plugin you buy for sheetcam, the rotary axis is treated as a linear axis so that it does not work in degrees but units (mm / inches)

Re: Scanything

I struggled on the orientation on mine and rotated the camera 180 degrees and it worked for me (I'm guessing it's the mirror reflection of the image.... right appearing on the left and left appearing on the right maybe)

path rules questions

is it possible to use a variable (say toolDia ) in the as the "distance" for a "before end" rule

Any way to expose these variables to the path rules?

thanks

Re: sheet cam and grbl

can you post your gcode?

sounds like your issue is M3 and M5 not being seen by GRBL (you may need to change the post processor so that it issues whatever GRBL needs to see to turn the torch on and off)

Plugin >> Plasma Tool

I noticed under Plugins there was a Plasma Tool lurking

How would one go about adding to it by way of the other material thicknesses etc?

(it needs a dropdown for the thickness and maybe a list for metric and imperial from the cut charts)

Thanks
