I've recently upgraded to the current version of MACH3 for my 3 Axis router.
I'm seeing unusual moves after I do a manual tool change.  This has ruined several parts, and I wondered if anyone could offer any advice on tracking this down. 
Previously I've been using a version that I bought about 3 years ago, and I've never seen this behavior.
If anyone has any advice, even about how to search this on the forums, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you to all who have made suggestions.
I will dig around on the forums a little and figure out how this works.

I love the wire bender!

This sounds close to what I need, can you give me any tips on how to investigate the process?
Thanks Very Much for any Reply,

Hello Brian, and all,
I enjoyed talking with you at Cabin Fever.  It was my first visit, and won't be my last!

I am wondering if there is any way to apply mach3 to a machine control application that is not CNC machining.  We often have applications for general machine control, these sometimes require motion (typically Allen-Bradley Logix 5000 Servo control) .

Can you think of any way to create a different front end, like an Man-Machine interface that was specific to the customer's equipment, and use Mach three behind the scene to run coordinated moves on the equipment?

I guess what I am asking is, is there a way to hide all the detailed cnc stuff on the Mach3 screen, load a G-code file and run it repeatedly all day long?  We would have to present the operator with a status screen, or some kind of a view of the equipment.  We do this today with RSView, Wonderware, and sometime custom VB applications.  We would probably want a hard wired push button for start and stop, and of course E-stop.

This could open lots of possibilities if it were feasible.
