Plasma Intercon now available for use

Post by bloomingtonmike »

PLaying with plasma last night and went to create in intercon and couldn't find it. Saw today its listed as FUTURE.

I am a big fan of Intercon. Hope plasma gets it for sure. A lot of why I like centroid.

Though not having a plasma cutter, was curious to test out the new Intercon.

WOW this is great.

I'm thinking it will also work pretty well for a waterjet.
Cheers,

Confidence is the feeling you have before you fully understand the situation.
I have CDO. It's like OCD, but the letters are where they should be.

the new user interface would be cool for all types of Centroid CNCs....

Unfortunately I also do not own a waterjet :mrgreen:

Wishlist's are getting longer ;)

I am wondering why you need a PP / CAM system for plasma?

I made this with nesting in Intercon, took only 4min and I am not used to the new Intercon.

DXF import and SVG import works well, if you have to construct more complex cuts.

Those look like the drain covers I’ve been cutting for the last few days from 1/4” aluminum.The latest, larger drain cover has 128 one inch holes. Does intercon make it cut any faster? :mrgreen:

I’m upgrading software this weekend now that the job is complete and will have a look at the new Intercon. I’ll admit, I’ve never even used it before.

They were indeed my inspiration :mrgreen:

Your Plasma is some kind of teasing me to have one also ;)
And who do not need drain covers? :D

But i do not think it makes cutting faster, but maybe speeds up setting up new parts ;)

..... or prevent extra cost to get a SheetCAM license.
