Another plasma component...

Yes that would be perfect.
My problem at the moment is that the scribe action is not turning straight away so having a delay for it to get up and running would help a lot.

I am having trouble with the downward pressure of the scribe being to much and its digging into the plate, when I adjusted the pressure for the slide down it got to a point where the upward slide wont work because the pressure is to low, I just brought a pressure regulator I am going to install on the down slide port only to be able to set it very low but the upward slide port will have normal pressure.
I am hoping with the delay it should work out well. Main problem with having to much downward pressure is the scribe is gripping the piece of sheet and sliding it around the table.
I have set the torch and pierced a hole then moved the scribe into the hole and noticed the dro. This gave me a x of 156 and a y of 32.5. I entered the values into the tool table.
Now when I run the PlasmaC g code file the torch moves from the zero position and goes to the P to be scribe and the scribe will start but its not positioning the scribe in the right place to start. I hope that made sense.
I found this was hard to create in sheetcam. Ended up spotting a 10mm hole with an offset in sheetcam to agree with the hole position (maybe I used -5,-5)
Don't ask me about my problems today. Cut all morning perfectly upgraded to current version (compiled) now with same material, can't cut for Sh1t. Plasmac was ignoring perfectly good arcOK's at one stage when spotting holes with tiny movement. Torch is way too high, and I'm not sure why.
You should be able to test it in MDI mode.
and the scriber should end up where the torch was
I move the torch to a new positon, Touched off x and y and ran that code and nothing.
Moved torch to new postion, did not touch off and ran that code and torch moves back to 0,0 point.
