For your previous post 29 of may post nr. 135227.
My advise for you is to use the code snipped ( on circles and small shapes ) to lower your speed
to 50-70%. Sheetcam lines will turn from green to blue where the code snipped is active.
This will result in more accurate holes and small shapes. At the moment you go to fast i see at the picture.
The post after this 29 May 2019 08:39, i marked up your plate allignment of plasma cutting is wrong in relation to the working table.
Always try to cut the long pieces the other way. Try alway's to cut the long pieces over the metal strips 90 degrees.
See this as your nesting protocol !
And in the end. Why don't you have a water table? This will end in a much more accurate product.
I made my second plasma rotary water cut option this week for a Belgium customer. Will give the forum picture coming day's.
Thanks for the advice. It makes sense. I stopped playing with Sheetcam rules when I started with plasmac becasue I wanted to use it in its standard form and it does not have a way to disable the THC from Gcode but I think now I can depend on its corner lock to do that. I still have much to do to to finish off my machine and I know I can't put it off any longer.
So is there any solution to the float switch issue or should I just disconnect it. I do like the float switch becaus it dont have a break away torch and any bump will stop the machine.
Is this happening after the torch is turned off or before?
Where the problem crops up is right at the end of a cut. If the sheet pops up right as it finishes and bumps the shield it trips out and I can’t restart it.
Is anyone else seeing the issue where the Torch Enable button has no colors?
John and Rod, could you post your ini file and pref file for the configs with the color issues.

If you get a spare minute could you try this:
comment out line 203 in plasmac_buttons.py which is "self.set_theme()" and see if that has any effect.
Does the button have no color at all or is it stuck on one color?
No change Phil. The buttons have the default background colour in all states
What is your default system theme?
I did manage to see this anomaly.
It happens here because Gmoccapy lets me select a theme that is not installed on my system.
Plus in my system appearances I can also select a theme (Adwaita) that is not installed...
