Rotary plasma

Post by ghost » Fri Jun 19, 2020 11:49 am

Hey, I'm new here so please be forgiving. As a user of Hypertherm 1650, an automatic burner on a mobile table converted from laser.
The software I use:
Advance Steel from which I release * .dxf then I import files to SheetCam TNG Development version 6.1.74 with the purchased license. using SheetCam generates G-codes, which it imports to Mach3. This procedure is certainly known to everyone. Burning on sheet metal runs without a problem. I would like to get information on what the whole procedure will look like (using the previously mentioned software) for rotational plasma (pipes or profiles). The rotary machine itself is not a problem, I am more interested in using the above software if it can burn in profiles?

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)
