Cutting Parameters

Thought I would start an idea going with a video and request for help on compiling what people use for their systems when using Cut systems.

The output of the Cut40 (in my case) is lower than high end cutters as the rated output is 96 Volts, so I tend to stick with the THC set at 96 or 97 Volts (1.5 Volt dead zone on my THC).

So here are the cut settings I use, some set in Sheetcam that I used on various thickness of steel.  Bear in mind that with a max of 40 Amps at 60% duty cycle, 30 Amps should be close to 100% duty cycle, and as I wanted to keep the machine safe I limited my current to 30 Amps.
