Hi We use Sheetcam on our Plasma worked fine
as so many change now to the Plasma Gui "PlasmaC" i want to know if there is a Special Post to this Cam System for using the
PlasmaC Special requirements/benefits
I did not find a Section in the Documentation that lists the Mcodes or special G-code command relations to edit the Emc post to fit PlasmaC

Use the stickied one in the Plasmac section; yes it works with SheetCAM, yes it's for PlasmaC (or QtPlasmac). forum.linuxcnc.org/plasmac/38438-plasmac-post-processors

When I load the plasmac.tools file from the github plasmac post site, I am getting this in the tools in sheetcam.

Am I missing something?

Can I just create all my tools in sheetcam and use those with Plasmac without any issues?
I dont need Plasmac to auto choose materials etc.....

The picture you posted is of the included cut rules with the post processor. From there you create your .tools file with all the materials and parameters if you’d like. You need at least one to post from sheet cam I believe.

This goes over everything I think you’re asking about material conversation from sheet cam and material handling (auto vs manual):

linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/plasma/plas...html#_materialverter

The manual really is a good read.
