Re: M10/M11

All the M codes except M10/M11 are macros in MACH . On some protiles the M code does more than just fire the torch, it also delays the motion until the ARC OK INDICATOR on the screen) is on . it used on systems with longer torch hoses . If it works for you then use it. It makes no real sense why it won't work without it unless your M43 macro in MACH is different.

Thanks for the reply. My M03 macro just has the DoSpinCW() command. I'll have to look at M43. Not familiar with that one. Never seen it in my gcode.
If I include the M03 it's like it overrides the M11 and makes the torch stay on.
If I don't use the M03 then I shouldn't need M05 either, correct? Since the M10 will shut the torch off.
I just remember reading a post from you that said you needed to have both M03 and M11, but I wasn't sure what would happen if you didn't.
