Is there anyway to move the MPG Mode and job buttonsfrom the right side of the screen to the left or even in a seperate window?

Rich,
       We reloaded the software onto a new PC and the problem with skipping steps has been eliminated.  The g-code is now cutting the parts on the x and y axis's, and the z is mostly working except, on each pass the z raises slightly so by the end of the cut, the cutting tip is way up in the air.  It's as if the x axis on the mill is at about a 30% angle.  Is there a setting where I can tell mach 3 where '0' on the z axis is at more than one point of the cutting table?

Do you think it might have something to do with our DeepGroove control box?

I lowered them in the config.  How do I do it in the program?

No.  The other mill is not a duplicate.  I lowered the velocity and acceleration to around 50% and still had the same problem.  This mill is brand new and my other one is 10 years old.  My other mill is a Model master and the g-code is a .mmg file.  I've tried about a dozen different g-code formats on this new machine and still get the same problem.

This code runs fine on my other mill.  I'll make those adjustments now and see if that helps.  Thanks.

We are having an issue with our drill.  It will run the .mmg file just fine, but over time the Z-axis on the drill starts to go higher and higher which causes the drill-bit to eventually not even touch the slab of wax in which we are trying to drill into.  Any ideas on how to fix it?
