Re: changing line colours

And if you want to set a different color to draw the project ie if you are tracing a black bmp you may want to use a yellow line, when you open the project right click the color before selecting any drawing tool and it will use that color until you change it. You can set the fill color the same way ...

Re: Hypertherm PM 45 Air issue ?

I've had the same issue from about the same time, replaced and pulled down solenoids and quite a few other things but we have just come to accept that any time the table has been idle we have to do a couple of air fires to ensure it starts. Running Neuron now it does two more re-trys if it fails to ...

Re: PM45 Cut Quality

Just to update on pierce count, I run Neuron THC which gives me a count of pierces so I asked my guy on the table to reset and write down the pierce count since I posted this last week. He has changed out two nozzles and electrodes and been cutting mostly 16 and 14 gauge but some 1/8" and 3/16&...

Re: PM45 Cut Quality

Yes, the shield gets blocked vent holes very often. Each time before i start cutting I attempt to clean them with a acy/oxy torch tip cleaner. If they are plugged then i usually cant get them unplugged and have to get a new shield. On the rare occasions that i cut anything bigger than 16 gauge the ...

Re: Moving start points on open paths

Can't see "on the fly" type starts working on anything thicker than about 14 gauge as XY motion is already happening when it pierces. You could try making your lead in as more of an arc or tangent, even extend it up the cut line by about 2mm before add ing the arced lead-in and let the two...

*** Please don't include my comment in the first 5, it's not a file I'd ever use here in Australia. I'd rather it went to someone who can use it but thanks anyway.

Re: PM45 Cut Quality

Jim, what's the best way to clean the vent holes on the shield? I have had great success by just soaking them in my Hydarochloric (muriatic) acid mix for about half an hour an then blow out with compressed air. I have shield that have done thousands of hours cutting and been soaked many times. Murray

Re: Tool in X7 to "push" lines apart?

I went from X5 to X8 which I think was worth while, I think most only upgrade every two or three versions. I have three seats so upgrading every version gets a bit expensive.

No problems Terry, glad I could help. If what I'm doing works out I'll probably end up replacing all the controls with Gecko G540 and Mach3 and if I need height I'll go Neuron again. Too busy to play with that though at the moment.
