Nice, but is a "fish story" until we see sparks and cutting action! :lol:
Well you got me there. Unfortunately it seems to make more money doing it’s job than showing off for the camera... hopefully an action shot soon!

Combo flame plasma retrofit

Well, finally got to cut the first piece today. Took longer to do the wiring and calibrate everything than I thought it would. Bit of a learning curve with the new software but we’re getting there. Original system ran mach3 through parallel port from windows xp. New setup uses the acorn, cnc12, and ...

Re: Output Control Both Auto and Manual

Thanks again Scott! Everything works perfect now.

For sure I will post a video when I get a chance.

To everyone reading this... Don't be afraid of the paid tech support. Total value for money, I couldn't be happier.

Re: Output Control Both Auto and Manual

Thanks a ton Scott. Very impressed with what you all did there remotely. The semi auto mode works great now. Unfortunately... new problem. Full auto is not working. Program runs feed hold when it calls for a dwell after the preheat. If I cycle start it activates the cut and continues like it should,...

Re: Output Control Both Auto and Manual

Still not doing what I need. This is what I changed in the PLC. It compiled fine. ;--Coolant Functions ;If a flood key is pressed, fire one shot IF (CoolFloodKey || KbFloodOnOff_M || SkinCoolFlood_M) THEN (CoolantFloodPD) ;If a mist key is pressed, fire one shot IF (CoolMistKey || KbMistOnOff_M || S...

Re: Output Control Both Auto and Manual

I'm not really looking to have the functions joined, independent control is working well as far as I can tell. I am looking to be able to have them enabled manually and disabled automatically. The scenario is as follows: M00 pause before part manually engage preheat operator determines dwell time, e...

Re: Output Control Both Auto and Manual

Really doesn't offer us anything to go on. Please post a report. My apologies for being vague. I just made a back up copy of all the original files and got in there and tried removing different code pertaining to auto and manual coolant. Honestly pretty haphazard, not my proudest moment. I doubt an...

Output Control Both Auto and Manual < Acorn tech support review >

Ok, so in over my head again. I have my preheat and cut solenoids working very well in place of the flood and mist. (see previous thread http://centroidcncforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=1354 ) The m code works great in auto mode and the keyboard works great in manual. But now I want to be complicate...

Re: M Code Simultaneous Flood and Mist Coolant

You guys are fast and awesome! I never expected a response on a Sunday morning.

I removed the M95 line and it now works perfectly.

Thanks so much!
