Useful Plasma Thread
Unfortunately not yet, have way to much for the time being, a truck load of raw material got delayed due to some dumb driver, so now i have to deal with a full factory of half finished parts and the delay that caused for our costumer.

By the way managed to nearly finish another plasma cutter, just to make my life even harder, here is a link to a test i did today:
Will try to get it done this week, the tutorial you linked is way to complicated. It can all be done in inkscape.
The grotius setup is in the Sim folder so is this just an environment issue that I need to address?
(sim.var and sim.var.bak weren't included in the last set of files due to upload error)
What's my best bet for getting this table cutting tomorrow?
I spent 2.5 years ( starting from zero knowledge of anything Linux) getting my setup to work using a custom Gmoccapy UI and running the EO development branch ( OK most of my computer hardware came from the dump but I did buy a 7I76E and THCad card from Mesa). Yes, I am very happy with the result. Is it perfect in my mind yet?,no. It still works MUCH better than my old commercial controller and THC. You need to be realistic here, from what I have seen in your posts you are trying to follow a several levels from the present stable release branch and have working commercial system that only the original author has working. Plasma is kind of an orphan child around here and there are very few that use it on an daily basis. Don't give up, if I can do it anyone can.
I am an old guy and don't type well. PM me with a phone number and good call times I can call toll free in the US and can work much faster that way.
I will start a new thread and begin a new axis build following in Tommy's footsteps.

That is changing for sure, have you seen this yet ?

I have small feet, number 41 !
I need to take another crack at your plasma build Tommy, would you mind posting your plasma build files? I appreciate all the work Grotius has put in, however Islander261 is right, in that it isn't wise for me to base my entire machine off of a development branch. Much love Grotius!
