The CUT DIRECTION prompt defines the outer diameter cut direction. The
inner direction is always opposite so that the same KERF side (LEFT/RIGHT) can
be used for both cuts.
The STARTING DIRECTION and REPEAT DIRECTION parameters can be directly
entered with the numeric keypad.
The LEADOUT position is determined by the direction of the cut. The
figure above shows the LEADOUT position assuming a clockwise cutting direction
has been selected.
When running the resulting NC part program, position the torches at the
CENTER of the first part, regardless of the REPEAT MODE selected.
From this corner, the program moves out to the actual pierce point.
When performing AUTO REPEAT mode operations, parts are shifted to the left
and right at a 60 degree angle.
