I have already tried the standard screenset exactly the same even shut Mach down and then restarted

I just changed the code to tool 1 with all Zero offsets in the tooltable still same problem

Also get the problem with a desktop, i tried to eliminate every thing i could think of myself before asking here

I posted my xml at the beginning i don't know if Hood has tried that, there is never a move in Z only X

Dont see anything wrong with your xml and it seems to run fine here with your code.

Do you have any custom macros at all? or Brains?

Hood And Art

A big thank you for your patience with this problem.

I have solved the problem but i don't know exactly what the problem is or how it came about. :-[ :-[ :-[

Hood your last post convinced me that it was all my fault, naturally.

So i used the standard macro folder and renamed it to my profile after renaming the original folder BAD

I ran the code it worked as it should, i then copied over my tool folder from the bad folder into the standard renamed tool folder, ran again still OK

The problem is I have lots more macros in the bad folder and some that are missing.

Just have to copy the macros over one by one and see if the problem returns. Have a look at the m6End.m1s and see if there is anything in that, it should say something like Not used in Turn but maybe yours had something else in it, I am not sure if Turn would just ignore it regardless of what was in it or not.

Hood are you a sadist.

I have been wrestling with this problem for the last 4 weeks and i defiantly do not want it to return. ;D ;D ;D

Maybe when i have had it working for a while i might see what it was.
