Torchmate Multitool Setup Error

Post by gdewaldfarm » Fri Mar 24, 2023 3:52 pm

Running Torchmate CAD V9 along with Torchmate table 3 with blue screen. I am having problem with my oxy fuel setup. The plasma cut and runs just fine. When i want to go to oxy fuel torch it gives me a error code in g-code. The error code comes up right away after imported. I send the cut file out in oxy fuel in turret 2 and it shows that in gcode. I am thinking it is in my macro setup. I can turn on the oxy fuel to cut under my AUX tab in table driver 3.

i admittedly have zero experience with the equipment your working with but I like to try and figure things out.

I see your error states line 9 in your macro is the issue so I count down to line 9 which reads "ELSEIF #CURRTOOL - 3 THEN" but there is no M code specified underneath that one which kind of corresponds to the statement in your error saying "The supplied name does not correspond to any declared value"

I would try either specifying a M code for "ELSEIF #CURRTOOL - 3 THEN" in your macro or delete that line altogether and see what happens.

Curious to know what you find.

I'm wondering if #CURRTOOL is an undeclared variable.
Most likely you have variable declarations somewhere in your macro. Maybe this one got skipped or maybe it's a typo and that's not the correct variable name in that statement.

I don't know if this applies here. but I use the Torchmate X post processor in sheetcam for my table and it requires Oxy /Acetylene tools to be numbered 500 and above. All plasma tools to be 2-499, and my plate marker to be tool 1
