you have to make sure your file extensions are visible in windows explorer before you rename them, otherwise they will remain the same file type ie extension and just have a .tools in between the filename and the .nc
For each tool named in this set, is there any rational behind each tool name? As in which tool is used for which size stock? I got all the tools loaded up but I see the kerf varies for each tool as does the cut speed. The tools are listed from T10-T550.
I was just wondering if you still had the toolset available? I tried to download it and it just kicked to a page with saying there is a URL issue. I am going to guess it got moved somewhere else. If you still have it or can export yours and send it to me it would be greatly appreciated!
If anybody is interested in toolsets for Hypertherm products, try this site out and follow directions starting at #3. Just don’t follow the post processor section. I believe this will delete other tool sets though.
(This is regarding the link that sr71xjet shared from AvidCNC; not the toolset linked at the top of the page that was created by elemental rage.)
I extracted those folders from the install package and loaded the 45 and 65 English shielded files. I would not recommend them.
The 65 file is very, very wrong. It does not match my manual’s table at all. By the way it imported, it looks like someone screwed up their CSV.
The 45 file also adds multiple rules and two “tools” (Code Snippets) that will modify the G-Code in the post processor, meant for a different machine and firmware, so there’s a very good chance it will cause havoc on the Crossfire. The 45 file also does not match my manual. It could be that these are from the tables prior to the Duramax torches and consumables.
I deleted them both, it’ll take longer to fix them than to write new tools individually.
