    I would think you can just open teh .GM in a text editor.

    Replace m64/65 with m50/51

    save as...

    Change the extension to .fgc

    should work???

    Mark, I am very close to purchasing a 4800 and I would like to see if you can do a video or pictures of the machine cutting #4 or #8 stainless Steel with laser paper.

    Thanks

    I am a Accumove 2. I was able to do the rip cut but I am not actually clear what the correct order of operations are. Could someone provide that as a step by step list. Thanks

    I figured it out,

    Open Tool Library
    Set the incremental amount of travel
    Hit Toggle to initiate plasma arc
    Hit the directional arrow to move the distance entered in the incremental travel window
    Hit Toggle again to end the cut.

    Very helpful, more tips please
