    The THC should not be enabled until after the arc voltage is stable. On my system that is a delay >.30s (yours will be different) from the arcok signal from the plasma power supply. I...

    Re: Using VCarve to make DXF's

    Sam

    Manual tracing does not require expensive SW like VCarve. Use open source (free) Inkscape. You can save as either .svg or .dxf. Inkscape will by default create complex curves that you can edit...
