i also like to add a table with direct drive motors like the forest cutting thin steel like 16 guage using a hypertherm pm85 45 amp requires 350 ipm speeds with good acceleration and no velocity slow down to get good cuts . any slowing down causes changes in cut voltage . then the thc unit wants to lower to bring voltage back up causing a dive during cutting . so min max setting on screen be needed also . and as for homing
most plasma users dont home the table we point to a start point hit zero all and run i never home my plasma table . unless i doing a large nest of parts on a full sheet . final a table with direct drive motors never do hypertherm book speeds on thin stuff they need reduction
building some that cant do hypertherm settings will be chasing endless cut problems

Nice to have: on board 2D CAD/CAM

I’m excited to hear you’re working on Plasma software!

More than a screen. Its a very cool, very responsive Centroid THC system Centroid is working on....

Any chance a second tool like a scribe can be added along side the torch? Scribing out hole locations or part numbers before the plasma cutting operation would be a nice addition.
