It should work, just take care of proper grounding and shielding.
As for the macro, install Inkscape, install gcode tools, there you already have a macro for plasma use with Linuxcnc.
I use that on all the plasma machines.

Thank you. Because is a cheap plasma cutter and the arc doesn't start as it's supposed, a wire from tip of the torch to material was added. This is highly risky and should be avoided by newbies. Now works nice.

Hello all,

I used this M3 macro:


Offset = 1
PierceHeight = 2

FeedCurrent = GetOemDRO(818) 'Get the current settings


Dim numar As Double


numar = GetOEMDro(186)

Code"G31 Z-100 F400"

While Ismoving()
Wend

Code"G92 Z0"


Code"G0 Z" & Offset 'Switch offset, merge la Z 1
While Ismoving()
Wend

Code"G92 Z0.000"
While Ismoving()
Wend

Code" G0 Z" & PierceHeight 'Pierce Height
While Ismoving()
Wend

SetOEMDro(186,numar)
'While Ismoving()
'Wend



DoSpinCW()

'Code "F1500"

Code "F" &FeedCurrent 'restore starting feed rate
