Hi Tommy, my CNC - Plasma is really starting to work :) Thank you for all your work and help in this topic.

My plasma is a cheap one, and it needs to touch the material to ignite. Is there a option to automatically raise the torch after ignition? Or should the THC take care of this?

Hello, I have been trying to get this configuration up and running for the past few weeks, finally got my machine and THC to respond correctly.

However using inkscape as a Gcode generator has proven to be an issue, when I load up a file the entry point for the Pierce is not on (0,0) and when it jogs to the Pierce it wants to cut, ruining the part and cutting it in half.

Is there a way I can modify or delete some files so I can use fusion 360 as a post processor? If not can someone show me how to fix the earlier issue with inkscape?
Thank you.

Have a look at SheetCAM. It isn't free, but it is designed for Plasma and runs natively on Linux:
