updated sheet cam now im getting a error message. Piece Height
An unexpected error occured.
pierce height must below rapid safety clearance
thos error occur on line 1230 in file …
been using this for about 2 years i just updated to the most recent update
I dont use sheet cam, but did you look and see what your rapid safety clearance is set at? Sounds like its to low
Under the “options” menu, look at “job options” and see what the rapid clearance value is. Make sure it is set to a value higher than your pierce height.
is there a preset value needed? never actually set any of these before
so now i got that rapid clearance value fix i think and pierce height im getting a message on fire control .
error @ line 39 ( cut height )
Feed Rate has not yet been set or undefinded
i have it set to 50 on the feed ugh any way i can go back to the old version ??
Just guessing, because I haven’t seen this error, but the feed rate for the pierce height line should be the “plunge rate” in your tool settings.
Perhaps some of these values got erased in the update. If you have a “job file”(not a cut file) saved from the old version, open it with the new version and all of your old settings will be there. Just save the toolset from the old job file, before closing the program.
i adjusted my plunge rate and was able to get file over to fire control usingold tool and program loaded now i go to cut part but i get an alarm code stating IHS failed the torch is not in the initial state before starting the ihs cycle but i dont have IHS.
also i have program error code -
g code locked out during alarm or jog state. any idea ??? i dont have z axis jus x and y
If you don’t have IHS, your pierce and cut heights need to be set at zero in Sheetcam. Otherwise, the post processor adds the IHS commands to probe the torch down to the material and set the Z zero.
With those commands in the code, Firecontrol expects the IHS circuit to be closed. Without a powered Z axis, that circuit is always open.
