Need a pause...

Is there a way I can do something in sheetcam that will cause Mach3 Plasma to stop and wait for user input - pressing the cycle start button again?

Would be useful to insert pauses into my cutting G-code if needed.

Mach is set to stop on tool change and wait for cycle start, but I don’t know how to issue a tool change from sheetcam.

First create a g-code snippet. Click on the G button in the tools window. For the code enter:
M0
Give it a name such as ‘wait’
To insert teh wait between operations use the G button in the operations window and select your ‘wait’ code snippet.
You can also use that snippet on individual start points if you need to.

Brilliant, will try that.

Thanks

Am I right that if I want to insert a pause between two cuts, both cuts need to be on different layers?

Switch to start point mode and select the cut start point where you want the pause. Right-click and select ‘properties’. You will see an option to add a code snippet to that start point.

Even better, many thanks Les.
