I edited mine and copy and paste yours on there. now the tool file is just a cheat sheet for me to have to use for future stuff? So now I need to copy my tools on sheetcam and import them to linuxcnc. You said that I can manually do it by inputting the seetings on the run panel right? And I see that you can add the voltage for the THC that would not be for the proma right?

You may need to change some tool numbers

Yes, you can use the Materialverter that Rod linked to earlier.

Yes, you could also do it this way.

Correct, the Proma has it own settings.

Also is there a way for the the THC not to turn off when I move the feed rate below 70ipm when I manually reduce the speed? When I am cutting 1/4 and I usually cut it at 45IPM the THC urns off and my table is not 100% flat so I get where my torch tip drags on the material.

That is set by the VAD Threshold % in the Config Panel.

That is the percentage of the velocity in Cut Feed Rate in the Run Panel.

I am trying to figure out the converter what file am I importing on here? Am I labeling it the size of material I want to create?

This is the file that does the conversion linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/plasma/plas...html#_materialverter

When you are happy with your SheetCam tool file then that is the file to be converted into a PlasmaC material file.
