MP3500 servo system rotary

A general question to all. Got my MP3500 5axia servo (850oz/in) setup back in 2014, I think. Tom would know, with the intention to do rotary at some stage in the future when there was a call for it. Well a call has come and gone and another is on the way, so this needs to be resolved. Some components had been arranged about 3years back and have been waiting patiently to be put to use. Have arranged the hardware to increase the table in size substantially, this time. I have the rotary icon on the desktop, the plasma part operates quite well as well as the routing, however when I go to the rotary it comes up with 'wake up client board not responding'. The main screen comes up but nothing moves. I will have a friend of mine come and look at the IP address over the next week, however is there something that I have missed, or need. Thanks in advance

Sorry forgot to ask. Is there a manual for the rotary plasma in Mach3?

1. You are getting that message because the ESS card is not getting the flash software load at the startup (from the ESS plugin) Since each profile is seperate you have a setting in that one as to the CONFIG that is not correct. Each profile can have different plugins configured and different settings in each config. So open the Profile that works and match all of the ESS settings. If that does not work then clone the plasma profile that does work and change the screen set tot he rotary screen set. and use the rotary POST for SheetCAM. use the Clone and not just copy and change the name.
2. There is an addendum in the DTHC manual for MACH for rotary cutting

Sorry, had a look in dthc manual (both parts in the manuals online) and can't find any reference to rotary cutting. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance

Good morning to all.
This may not be in the correct place, but here goes anyway. have been playing with rotary sheetcam. I have been given a flattened out a shs (square hollow section) dxf drawing which I have imported into sheetcam. Sheetcam does the simulation, however the drawing has been done in solidworks in the 'sheet metal' function and assumes that the shs is bent up out of sheetmetal.
Is there anyone that could enlighten me on the correct method to get the drawings drawn, or is there some workaround to remove lines that would not normally be cut. This has got me quite miffed at the moment.
Again any help would be greatly appreciated.
