Change post-processor for plasma start from M3 to M64

LS,

 

My CNC has the plasma torch connected to a digital output 0. I can successfully switch-on this output by using the command M64 P0 or off by using the command M65 P0.

 

My Post processor (based on Mach3 Plasma build in post) in Fusion 360 still writes M3 (spindle start CW) and M5 (spindle OFF).

So for me to work with this setup I need to change M3 to M64 P and M5 to M65 P0.

 

Does anybody have any experience in this field?

Hi @dr.nopple .

 

I don't have any experience with this, but I may be able to fix it.

Is it possible to attach a simple sample data (f3d file) and post config (cps file)?

I looked at the f3d file.
The file doesn't have any Manufacture data in it.

I would like to see what toolpaths and what tools you are using.

Can you please export it from here?

I modified it to handle it like this.
