Hi folks, bein using fire control for several months and need some advice. 1. Is there a way to clear the Gcode (program) without resatarting the software. 2. Is there a way to tell crossfire where to park/move the tourch after the cut is complete. its not a big deal but would like to park the plasma cutter over material to reduce splashing during post flow. or is this dome in fusion?
It should be simple enough to modify the post to allow input of your park co-ordinates (X,Y) and then go to that location at the end of run. Note these would need to be based on your work home. (I suspect it could also be done as an incremental move from your last position, but not positive.)
I’ll play around with the post and see if I can make this happen.
I think this works. The G-code is valid. (Haven’t actually loaded on my table yet…)
There is now a Park checkbox during post, as well as a X and Y axis entry. If enabled, the torch will G0 (rapid) to that location at the end of the program. If disabled, the post ignores the Park entries.
Unfortunately, they are absolute, based on your origin location. If I enable Incremental moves, my G-Code blew up.
That being said, you should have a rough idea of where your last pierce / cut occurs. Additionally, Fusion will provide a “rough” stock size. (In setup.) For my tests, I added 1" to the height and split the width. (My pierce was on the top.) That parked the torch after cut to about 1" away from the pierce.
