    That is some really nice work. Can I ask how long it took to design the fish?

    The consumables are the same except the shield. For hand cutting you use the hand cutting shield that maintains the correct arc voltage (length) when dragging. For machine cutting you use the machine shield that is designed for cutting with a height control to maintain proper arc voltage (height).

    For cutting with the Finecut consumables I recommend using the 220948 shield for both hand and machine cutting. Jim Colt Hypertherm

    I'll be honest I have little to no artistic talent. Everything I have made happened one of two ways.... dxf file which was already made that I acquired, or a photo on the internet that I copied and then used Inkscape to trace the bitmap then cleaned the file up which has been taking about an hour. In the case of the scorpion fish it had lots of detail so I spent about an hour in sheetcam moving all the different sections to different layers to be handled differently. Between Inkscape and sheetcam about any photo can be turned into Gcode that will cut out a fairly nice whatever. The artistic folks that have the talent to draw this stuff specifically for cutting operations and make it look awesome (like tuna I cut out) have the hard part of the job in my mind. Actually I build almost everything these days in the shop from cad files even the more simple ones I draw in solidworks. I have a real high appreciation and respect for the guys making the more advanced cad drawings it's amazing how much having a working, tested part helps before it ever leaves the cad system. Sorry for long answer I could have just said, usually about an hour.....

Size:  74.7 KBGot my table up and cutting today. Trying to dial in cuts on some 10ga hot rolled steel which was thr first sheet I loaded. In my arclight program sheetcam theres not a preset setting for 10ga. It goes from 12ga to 3/16. So, Ive been trying to setup my own settings. I started with the hypertherm recommended machine settings and was told to adjust the coltage to get the torch to .060 height while cutting.

    Any feedback or tips on how to get your ideal settings and what to look for.

Size:  74.6 KBPut some new consumables in and it seems to be cutting better. Been playing with it on 10ga and tried some 1/4" today. I cut a caster mounting plate I use on some welding fixture block tables. Heres a laser cut 3/8" version on one side and my 1/4" plasma cut version right off the table with no cleanup.

    Having trouble getting my auto drain to work on my quincy. I plugged it in and it worked the first time, opened up for 5sec or so and quit and never would come back on. I hit the test button and nothing happens. The off light is lit up, which seems normal. Adjust the dial to where it should come on quickly but it doesnt. Seems like a dummy proof switch but somehow Im messing it up or it shorted out.

    Slowing down a bit more on the smaller holes will take some of the taper out and make them more round. Looks like your kerf offset may be a little to much as well.

    Tried some 1/2" scrap cuts today. Not bad for my 45xp and factory settings.
