Turning off ohmic touch off function???

Post by JeepGuy » Fri May 27, 2022 4:00 pm

trying to get my pen plotter to work, got mach 4 switched to router but my g code is still making it look for a ohmic touch off plate. is it possible to turn it off completly? i found where to switch it from ohmic to mechanical but i just want to shut it off to use a pen plotter .

Go into the Reference function in the post and comment out all of the code. Put -- in front of everything. Or just remove the code all together.
I'm sure there is a command that you can put in to skip referencing with the marker tool, but I'm not at my computer right now to look it up.
Save this post under a different name so you still have the original.

Instead of editing the post, use a non-plasma post processor.

I have suggested that earlier, in another post from Jeepguy. But I not sure if he has the software to do that to work with Mach4 for a rotary tool.

If he's using Mach4 the 'Mach3' post should work.

thanks Les
that may fix his problem, each G-code he generated had an ohmic sensor command in it.
