Unable to get THC to turn off on lead in.

Post by Cbert10 » Mon Jan 24, 2022 10:24 pm

Hi have been struggling to get my lead in to turn my THC off on lead in. When I show the path rules there will always be a small green spot in the beginning of the lead-in that will occasionally crash my torch.

Not knowing what THC you have but some have a delay they set that allows for the arc to stabilize before it is turned on. Your lead in may be to short and your path command is not the problem. The delay is to short and the arc is not stable causing the crash to happen sometimes.

Agreed, I am running Mach 4 with a TMC3in1. The problem seems to happen even if I have my THC set to a 1 second delay after pierce.
