Hood, I believe VCarve sets the tool offset in the Gcode, so I think setting Tool Selections Persistant will solve the problem. I will test to see. Thanks, again, for all the help!

Hood, thanks for the suggestion. I haven't been able to try it yet, but I'm just wondering. Since this just looks like a Tool Number issue (VCarve specifies Tool Number 1 in the Gcode, Mach3 is expecting Tool Number 0), wouldn't the fix be to simply sync the Tool Numbers?

Hood, I believe it does happen with the other .xml as well. I can't say I noticed it on the screen, but I mostly use the XBox controller to Start and Stop and I am watching the cutter as I start, not the screen. But I would often have to press the Start button twice, so I am going to say yes, it did happen with the other.

Hood, LCorsa.xml seems to work fine. The only thing is, I have to hit "Cycle Start" twice, as the first time I hit it, the tool number changes from 0 to 1 and the "Change Tool" icon blinks yellow. When I hit Cycle Start again, it goes into action. Tool Number 1 is default in VCarve Pro (used to generate the Gcode). Is there a way to have Mach default to Tool Number 1? If necessary, I can change the tool numbers to 1 on all my tools in VCarve (easier to do once in Mach, if the option is available).

Hood, did you see anything else seriously wrong (dangerous) in my .xml that should be fixed?

Hood, yes, Cycle Start and Feed Hold buttons on the machine itself also work. Thanks, again!

Hood, with the OEM Trig #1  enabled, and Active Low on each enabled, the jogging works, as do the Start and Feed Hold switches (on screen buttons and XBox buttons). Fantastic! Thanks very much!

Hood, I did have time to try disabling those OEM trigger inputs. Yes, it does work. However, I need to check with Romaxx to see if those are active triggers for the closed loop function. If they are, I will need to leave them active. I'll let you know. Thanks for all the help!

Thanks, Hood. I will try that (later, need to go out for a few hours) and report back. If nothing else, hitting STOP when opening Mach is better than running a toolpath! Better to get it functioning properly, of course.
