  • Selectable start position, CW/CCW cutting, and selectable repeat mode and direction.
  • The STARTING CORNER and REPEAT DIRECTION parameters can be directly entered with the numeric keypad. Direction arrows are provided for quick reference.
  • When defining the LEADIN ANGLE, 0 degrees is parallel to the Y axis and 90 degrees is parallel to the X axis.
  • The LEADOUT position is determined by the direction of the cut. It is either parallel to the last side cut (as shown) or 45 degrees from the last cut direction.
  • When running the resulting NC part program, position the torches at the STARTING CORNER of the first part, regardless of the REPEAT MODE selected. From this corner, the program moves out to the actual pierce point.
