Don't forget to account for half the diameter of the wire plus overburn...I usually move .0065 in.
This is a little off topic, but I've seen you bring this up before and I don't really understand it. When you do your pickup, it's not like you are compensating for a strong spark going that would affect your location. If you moved in .005 in both directions the center of the wire would be on the corner. If I did what you do my location would be off .0015 each direction. Unless this has to do with the way you program your toolpaths?
Ok, if this is what the canned cycle does, you will not be able to edit it unless you can get access to the code the machine is using to command the motors and the wire cutting feature.
So if you use those routines you don't normally get to see this code or modify it as a user.
Somewhere there's got to be a way to grab it and change it, but it might only be accessible to a technician.
It's a stupid way to have written the code...I don't want to cut the wire once I've found a feature, but I have no idea how to grab it or edit it to make it stop that.
Mine doesn't do that, and I'm glad it doesn't.
