  4. Re: Possible sheetCAM problem, no charp corners?

    yep - constant velocity - you either have to turn CV off - or decrease feedrate, and/or increase acceleration, and/or set CV distance to a tolerable radius (which will cause the machine to slow down...

    Re: New plasma table won't cut

    off the shelf gcode is unlikely to be ideal for your machine/material/settings - use sheetcam to generate gcode that does work - that means create a sheetcam tool with the right lead-in, pierce...

    Re: Plasmacam PC requirements

    a lot of PC boards have an LPT1 port - it's a 26 pin dual row pin header on the motherboard - you just have to locate the pins - get a parallel port bracket - and possibly enter BIOS setup to...

    Re: mach3

    coppercam exports gcode and mach3 reads gcode - coppercam is for circuit boards so it wouldn't have much text design functionality - you need vector graphics software (inkscape, corel draw, etc..) to...

    Do you have constant velocity on with a high federate and low acceleration ? Try turning CV off and see if the problem goes away.
