Question #: 15569

Question: [USB and Ethernet CNC Control (Pokeys57CNC)] Does this support THC functions.

Current Solution

Yes, this board supports THC functions. I have tested the Proma THC and the PlasmaSens which use fiber optics for communication to reduce EMI.

  • [575] Does this card support THC functions.

    This Mach3 USB controller does not support THC functions. I would recommend using the Pokeys57CNC controller instead.

  • [575] Does this support THC function?

    Unfortunately, all of the attemps I have made to use this controller with a THC did not work, so I would not recommend this board for plasma machines that use a THC. THe Pokeys57CNC controller will work with several THC controllers. I have used the Proma and the PlasmaSens controllers with the Pokeys57CNC.

  • [803] Can this THC with another controller than the one mentionned ?

    This torch height controller can be used with any controller that allows three inputs to be assigned within Mach3. The pokeys57CNC is such a controller. The Mach3 USB controller cannot be used with a THC, but another controller that can accept inputs can be used. The three inputs are used to inform Mach3 of ARC up, ARC ok, and ARC down.

  • HOW MANY SIDES DOES A TRIANGLE HAVE?

    The triangle has three (3) sides. The triangle is a polygon that contains three sides and three inner angles and three vertices.

    Additional Information:
    But if a triangle have a front and back side wouldn't the triangle have 5 sides

    Additional Information:
    Interesting slant (pun). A triangle would have 5 sides if the triangle had a thickness and became an object. A triangle drawn on paper with three lines would still only have three sides. A triangle is a primitive form of geometry (polygon) that can only have three sides in its simplest form. If you add complexity to the triangle with a thickness and count two more sides, then it really isn't the simplest form of the triangle anymore and it becomes another geometrical 3D primitive like a triangular prism.

    Additional Information:
    A triangle has multiply answers for number of sides but is made up of 3 lines.. this is because when connecting the 3rd line to form the shape you create an "inside". so you could say a triangle has 2 sides, an "outside" and "inside" or you could say 4 sides, an "inside" and 3 "outside facings" or 6 sides 3 "outside facings" and 3 "inside facings". none of these answers are incorrect technically. the important thing is that a triangle is made up of 3 inner angles adding upto 180 degree's.

    Additional Information:
    A triangle has 6 sides, there are 3 straight edges in AND out side of a triangle.

    Additional Information:
    I am fairly sure that a triangle has 12 sides (3 insides and 3 outsides on each side).

  • DOES THE SOFTWARE WORK ON AN APPLE?

    There are several CAD/CAM programs out there for MacOS. Here is a list of a few: http://www.macuser.de/forum/f53/3d-2d-cad-395058/#post4499316
    I've also read good things about punchCAD: http://www.punchcad.com/
    Of course, there is always SketchUp if you are in a pinch. There are a few CAM plugins for SketchUp as well, but I've never used them, so I can't vouch for them.

    CAD/CAM will get you as far as designing your parts and producing the g-code, but if you also want to run the CNC machine with your Mac, you will need a piece of software similar to Mach3 or EMC to run the g-code. I haven't been able to find anything like these programs that runs on Mac, so you may have to run Mach3 or EMC in Windows using Boot Camp or a virtual machine such as VMware or Parallels.

    Personally, I would use the Mac to do all the CAD/CAM, then use a cheap PC to run the CNC machine.
