Phill,

With the scribe, Your update has gotten everything working. kinda..

When I run the sheetcam job file you sent me, If I do not run the M3 $1 S1 before starting the program the torch will try to cut out the air scribe part. Then when I do run the command it will try to scribe the first P and the next letter it goes back to using the torch.

Is that because as the scribe retracts it is turning the change spindle code off? Maybe we need to link the arm scribe function to something else rather that the spindle off and on command. Just a thought, I am still very inexperienced with G-code.

I have kinda messed things up over the last couple of days. Have you updated again since about 6:30pm yesterday.

Could you post your INI file, your machine HAL file and your connections HAL file.

It may be worthwhile you doing what I suggest to @MakingStuff here .

Is that plasmac.ngc with the four holes and the word PlasmaC?

I am at a loss, I just did a clone and rip build, ran Configurator and loaded plasmac.ngc and it worked as it should.

There should be no need to do M3 $1 S1 before a program is run, that should be taken care of by the program.

The only thing I can see I need to do is stop an M3 S1 turning on the air scribe as well as starting a cut but that is a separate issue

Can you confirm that the GCode in the window after loading the program is the same as pic I have posted here.

Ive attached the NGC file to this post.

If you can send me the g-code file you are using I will test it, It might be a problem on my end.

Yes, the file you are using is only generating M3 S1 codes.

Also I see that you still have the Manual tool change component loading, that is a consequence of my errors in the Configurator.

Try this HAL file as well.

That got it working,

How can I set up that I want the scribe to come down then start the scriber then move after the scribe has started.

I want to have the scribe activated for a certain number of seconds before motion.

So you want:
  1. scribe arm output activates
  2. adjustable delay
  3. scribe start output activates
  4. adjustable delay
  5. motion begins
