The nozzle and electrode were missing from the PlasmaCAM this evening as I checked it before class. This is the third time in the last four classes that I have had to use personal consumables. In previous cases the parts were present but would not cut. I left the torch out of position and a note to call attention to the problem.
PlasmaCAM is now out of service unless you furnish your own consumables.
Also, the torch was cutting very, very slowly, even when I increased cutting speed to 400. The problem was that both acceleration parameters were set to 0.01 instead of 0.1. We were using one of the configuration presets and I don’t remember which one.
