Pause the cutting operation before every cut

Post by drafting@gsb » Mon Jan 27, 2020 7:10 pm

I am using sheet cam for plasma Rotary cutting, Can anyone please tell me how to edit the post processor to add "Pause" before every cut! What is the code and where to insert the code?

Edit the post processor

you will find a section called "function OnPenDown()"

Add in a line which says "post.Text (" M0 (Paused >> Press Run) ")

and that should work for you {note, I don't known which cnc controller software you are using)
