Make a video? Perhaps we are misunderstanding what you are trying to do, but the last material used by any GCode file should be selected at the end of the file now.

In previous versions of QtPlasmaC you can edit any gcode in Parameters Material section to cut any size of material you want without generating any gcode again but now it's not possible. for example the video a posted eleayer show what I am trying to say. I have generated a gcode in sheetcam for cutting 1mm material but in QtPlasmaC I want to cut 3mm material. in the video you will see 00000Temporary00000 which is the sheetcam gcode but I want to edit it to
3mm material, but when 3mm material is select for cutting you will see it's selected but it's will change it to 00000Temporary00000 when cutting and come back to 3mm after cutting .

You have a temporary material in the GCode file, so it will always be selected, as that's what you told it to do.  This is how QtPlasmaC has always been.

You can do what you are talking about, but first you need to remove the temporary material line from your gcode. 

Remove this line:
(o=0, kw=0.06, ph=0.5, pd=0.1 ... ~~this is all I can see of this line from the video~~

Refer to this section in the user guide, which describes how to do manual material handling:

linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/plasma/qtpl...al_material_handling

Note the minimum code necessary to have a successful cut using the manual material selection method.


If you are unsuccessful with this, then please post your gcode here.

If you review the docs, there is a way to import your Sheetcam tool library into qtplasmac. It used to be by a seperate script called materialverter but that could have changend

Did you see my post about removing the temporary material?

If you’re unwilling to post your gcode, then I am unable to help you at this point.
