I have mach 4 plasma with vital system arch pro screen with sheet cam the post processor that works is the mach 3 the others don't seam to work nether does the vital system one

my problem is I have en engraver in the plate marker tool I need to delite the M3 M5 command so it wont fire my torch with the spindle commands
I can disable it in mach because it take my THC off line when going from engrave to a plasma cut on the same layout im almost there
every thing works fine except torch fire win the plate marker tool using m3 m5

Not sure what the correct way to do it would be, but short term, you could use coolant on/off commands operate the engraver relay.

its not the engraver I have a problem with I have an out put programed with over ride switch on screen works fine in mach 4

I just need to remove the M3 M5 spindle on command in the plate marker tool. so it wont fire my torch
I cant switch it off because when I switch to the torch it has to work to make the torch cuts

every thing works fine except the spindle command in the plate maker I using a hilcon controller with the arch pro screen it uses the spindle on for torch control
if I change it ill have other tool problems wanting to use the m 3 m5 commands

the best way is I need a plate maker tool with no m3 m6 in it ill be good to go
