All these issues "should" be fixed now in 2.8, master and the test branch.

Thanks Phill, much appreciated as always! I am planning to mess with my THC this evening so I'll report back if something is amiss :)

One thing I noticed tonight: If you're on the MDI screen and the machine pauses during a cut, it will let you type in and send MDI commands, even though they do nothing. After a failed cut I kept trying to G0X0Y0 so I could bump the torch over and try again. It kept getting me that the machine was paused. It's be cool if the MDI box or the GO button (or both) greyed out during a pause, so you cant try to send commands and get confused why it's not moving like a goon :)

That is a problem of trying to integrate into existing GUIs. I could possibly do it with Axis but I doubt it I could do it with Gmoccapy.

Good thing I use Axis exclusively... the rest can bugger off! :laugh:

I do regret supporting them both, it makes for a lot of extra work. I should have stuck with Axis...

I find gmoccapy to be extremely difficult to navigate.

At any rate, I think I found out why Tormach never answered my email about how they clear programs.

tormach.com/machines/plasma-tables.html

It seems we are in direct competition now :laugh:

In all seriousness, I wonder if they are using @PCW's THCAD. It seems they use his hardware (in a modified to suite Tormach's needs) everywhere else, it wouldnt surprise me. Also, I wonder what they are doing for ohmic sensing.

Seems a bit pricey though.

It will be neat to watch all it can do. And compare it to my home built table :evil: :silly: :woohoo:

I guess I should have had a peep first, and answer my own questions:
#Torch voltage
setp hm2_[HOSTMOT2](BOARD).0.encoder.00.counter-mode true
setp hm2_[HOSTMOT2](BOARD).0.encoder.00.scale 1
setp hm2_[HOSTMOT2](BOARD).0.encoder.00.filter false
net rawtorchv hm2_[HOSTMOT2](BOARD).0.encoder.00.velocity scale.0.in 

#Reading actual voltage

#5v calculation (half of the hv resistors shorted out)
#0v=96khz 5v=933khz
#0v to 5v = 837khz
#Gain = 5v/837000 hz =.00000597371/hz
#offset = .00000597371/hz * 96000hz * -1 = -.573476
# x50 gain = 0.0002986857
# x50 offset = -28.6738

setp scale.0.gain 0.0002986857
setp scale.0.offset -28.6738

net torchvolt scale.0.out

#filter voltage slightly
net torchvolt torchV-lowpass.in
setp torchV-lowpass.gain .1

I find it interesting that they use the same calibration across all tables.

Which actually reminds me of a question. My voltage fluctuates a bit at idle, bounces around 0-3v. Should I apply a lowpass filter? I did tool around with the lowpass filter a bit, and it seems when I got it to stop bouncing around, it did nothing during a cut :laugh:

At any rate, maybe it's not necessary.
