Postprocessor for rotary plasma

Post by Craig » Mon May 18, 2020 6:13 pm

We are using GRBL1.1h with USB-CNC plasma.scpost. A friend set up a breadboard using an Arduino and drivers and it works! We have built a more permanent copy in a case using identical parts and software and it doesn't fire the plasma to cut-but the table and torch move correctly. We have recently tried adding S1000 to the M03 torch-on command lines and the torch cuts correctly. Can you tell us how to update the postprocessor code to include the S1000 command to the M03 command lines?

Do you need S1000 with the M3 or just at the start of the code?

We need to S1000 command to appear on the same line as every M3 command
