Yeah ...... NO !
No CPA for you ! :)
Do not bother with it, it can not work, just disable the THC and move on.
Almost all good plasma sources have that feature, easy to check if they do, fire the torch and move it up and down from the metal part, it should pilot>cut>pilot>cut ....
That is the reason why it can not be used with THC active, the voltage will change drastically, so no amount of ignoring ARCOK will help.

I can't ever remember Plasmac having so many bugs until Snowgoer took up his role as official tester.... It must be his fault!.....

May have to sack him, I think he takes his role too seriously.


Haha, that's pretty funny! Just make sure you send over my severance pay, if you do decide to give me the boot :laugh:

I will update and try again, I still have the metal on the machine. It was some old rusty stuff, so it should be pretty easy to duplicate all of the errors trying to get it to cut it. Perfect for testing error recovery, if nothing else.

I'm really less worried about the THC, and more worried about getting constant "arc-ok signal lost" errors. Plus, I don't know how you'd cut mesh material on the plasma without some way to ignore the arc-ok, and just let CPA mode do its thing? But yes, I think it would be prudent to just turn the THC off and hope for the best. Probably not really looking for a super high quality cut when you cut mesh.

No worries. To save on transaction fees we will credit that as a discount on your software support fees. :lol:

Snowgoer, you should know that severance pay is null and void across international boundaries!

I'll show all of you by doubling down on my error-finding efforts! :evil:

Paused motion didn’t seem to be working correctly. It wouldn’t always “execute next line”, and when I got to a rapid movement, it wouldn’t execute at all. Also, at the rapid movement line, i couldn’t resume motion. But I was doing it from the main GUI, and not the cut-recovery button. Perhaps maybe I HAVE to use the cut recovery button now?


That happens in a normal config as well, I have never noticed it before. Obviously I never stopped paused motion on a rapd segment.
I have a fix that entails PlasmaC using the motion.motion-type pin and it seems to work ok. I will do a bit more testing...

@snowgoer540

Which test branch version are you using, when I update tomorrow I'll get rid of the one you are not using.

My boss suggested that I go to 2.8 so that my testing is congruent with the version of software the developer is using. As a good employee, I'm now on 2.8 :silly:

I guess I didn't either, it just happened about 0.030" from the end of the cut, so the next movement was a rapid, and it wouldnt let me move on. I swear I've progressed through rapids in the past though? At any rate, now maybe it will go through the entire program forward and backward?
