ok so 200 step x 10 micro steps is 2000 steps per motor rev. 10TPI screw means 10 motor revs to move one inch so 2000 x 10 = 20,000 steps per unit.

Thanks.  That should really help!  Again, I remember this after you tell me.  I swear this was a learning curve to complete the first time around.  I, like many others, got in deep water and when completed swore I'd never change anything (configuration) on it.  Then the dang hardrive died. 

I have put this off for 8 months, knowing I would have to relearn everything.  This bit has really helped.  I will try it again and see if she will move.

Thanks.

Once you get it running save your xml to another drive or a CD or something ;)

Sounds like you may be in Step Jog mode, press Tab key on keyboard and make sure you are set to Constant.
If thats not it attach your xml and I will have a look.

Afraid that seems to be a blank xml as there are no motors enabled at all.

Where do you see that about the motors not being enabled? Interesting.

Something else is happening beyond that.  I have MACH2 on my cpu at work and when I upload the circle I can jog XY.  On the one at the CNC the XY will not jog on the screen. Same program, same soundilogic. 

Thanks.

Is this Mach2 or Mach3 we are talking about? I thought it was Mach3 you were using? The xml for Mach2 will not work for Mach3.
