Plasma Cutter Tool Paths

I just got my plasma cutter back up and running. In the past we have used a program called sheetCAM to create tool paths for the plasma cutter. I know Fusion can do it so I want to get rid of Sheet CAM. I am able to set up a job and create toolpaths, but after I posted the file it wouldn't run correctly on my machine. I'm thinking I'm using the wrong post.

 

I have an Arclight plasma table with a hypertherm plasma cutter. It runs on Command CNC P2 plasma. The only post I could find in the fusion library was a generic one for Hypertherm. 

 

Can anyone point me to some detailed instructions for posting nc files to this machine from Fusion?

Hi @pdelosa let me see what is available for plasma posts. I check with this post team if I can’t find a specific post for your machine to see what can be done about getting. 

Look for a reply on Friday.

Hi @pdelosa Do you know what control that plasma runs? I don't see anything on the post website in reference to Arclight. I'm going to try to call Arclight support at 7:30 PST to see if they can provide any information or provide me a programming manual. I'll update this post in a bit after I have talked with them.

Hi @pdelosa I was poking around the Arclight website while waiting for support to get in. I saw this on their FAQ page:

FlashCUT.png

 

There is a post processor in Fusion for FlashCUT CNC. Can you try that post and report what your results are please? 

 

Thanks,
