Alive at last

Postby Dingo745 » Sat Dec 17, 2016 8:43 am

After a lot of head scratching and thanks to Andrew Shmatok's help, time and patience we finally have my DIY 5'x5' CNC plasma cutter working correctly, and more importantly Andrew's Torch Height Controller, the Neuron Simplicity is able to control the cutting operations.
Andrew Shmatok is the designer of the Neuron Simplicity THC http://neuroncnc.com/products/neuronalone and has given me fantastic after sales service by remotely helping me set up the controller and other settings all done remotely via Skype with him in the Ukraine, and me in Oz.
So I can honestly say that he sells and backs up a fantastic product and old adage of you get what you pay for definitely rings true with the Neuron THC.
Anyhow this is just a test part, but it does cut as it's intended.
So again, thanks Andrew your a champ

Well I was too excited that it was finally operable to say anything, but picture is worth a thousand word so they say.
So why be so harsh on an excited newbie. experts start from the bottom as well old mate.

All good mate. I have nothing to tell anyone about plasma cnc 's as it's my first foray into plasma but I have built three cnc routers and also had an large ebay CO2 laser engraver cutter.
Everyone of them has been a learning experience trying to get to competent in the use of the machines and various softwares.
I an absolute newbie with SheetCam and only purchased that yesterday so I have a lot to learn about that, at least I used Mach3 for a while so I know the in's and out's of that so that is a good thing.
