Re: pause for manual check or adjustment

Re: pause for manual check or adjustment

I would like to generate the g-code in Aspire, then edit it to place something like a 'pause' command (whatever sequence that might be) in the ...

pause for manual check or adjustment

Is there a way I can insert a pause at any point in an Aspire program that will pause the program so I can make a measurement or adjustment and then continue?

I have been using V 10.022 since it was released. I was reviewing the What's New and the help ? options. I noticed that I do not have some of the options, like the use of multiple clearance tools.

question on raised letters

Not exactly a prism, but where the letters are up, possibly flat on the top, but with a bit of a rollover edge and the background is down flat.
