I’ve been doing some ‘self training’ while I’m waiting on Box 1 (batch 2) and have been designing some ‘first cuts’ to play with once I get setup and running. Attached is an example of some playing around I’ve been doing in Sheetcam with Action Points. Action Points allow you to make some changes to the cut path dynamically - feed rate, etc…
I’ve got the path highlighted to slow down to 25% of the cut rate and disable THC, enabling it again when out of the area.
My question is: with Firecontrol and THC, is this necessary or will it cause problems with the auto THC system? I would run some experiments, but I’m not setup yet, and I’m more looking for a recommendation if doing things like this is wise with Firecontrol.
Also, if doing this type of thing is ok and doesn’t cause other issues, what are the correct G codes to turn THC On and Off. I’m using S21 and S20. I’m not sure if those are correct - I picked them up somewhere, but it may have been a tutorial not related to Crossfire Pro.
Edit: I found this post : THC ON/OFF Gcode
It says H0 off and H1 on. For this post assume S21 = H0 and S20 = H1.
