That means you don't have a material that matches the tool you use in SheetCam.


Can I input the information on the run panel as far as the cut height and pierce delay info on there and will it be going to towards the job I am doing?

You can but that totally defeats the purpose of having different tools in SheetCam.
If you use CAM software like SheetCam then you should have a material in PlasmaC that matches every tool you use in that CAM software then all your cut parameters are set automatically during the job.

It seems your SheetCam setup is not using cut rules or there is an issue with them as there is no velocity reduction in the gcode file you posted earlier.

OK here is one I just did right now with sheetcam with the hole rule. In sheetcam I have my material setup on the tools tab on sheetcam that matches with my material I will be cutting. here is a screen shot.

No velocity reductions in there either.

Edit: Can you post the SheetCam job.

Please review the screen dumps here

But ignore the tool setup for centerpunch. That is specific to my post processor. The one for Plasmac is a bit different.

Really post processing is out of scope of Linuxcnc. There are many resources for sheetcam to guide you on how to use rule sets.

Save the job in SheetCam and post that saved job file.

You had a rule but there was no code for the rule.

Attached is the modified file with the added code.

You should update the PP to the one I linked to earlier.

There is also a tool file there that has some more code snippets you may want to look at.

Mine is a later version of the one you are using or you could use Rods if you want.

The tool file will give you an idea of some extra code snippets. You don't have to use them.
