You need to unzip the copycat and make sure it goes into the right directory. normally c:\mach3\addons\copycat  Then start go to mach3 and select "Select wizards" then select copycat.

There are 2 screens one manual copy and the other Probe copy.

NOW IF the copingkatting does not suit you there MAY be another way Using a new page program that does some magic with the encoder. But that is a last resort,(lot of work)

Ok, got Copycat, I had an old Mach demo version on this computer, Copycat
comes with default stuff.  Just had to download current Mach version.  

Docs show a video versus probe and that is exciting! Cant get to bed, too much
to think about

  I've been hooked for years with 4 machines now running Mach!  The 4th one is
a retrofit for a Mori Seiki SL1 lathe that I am just starting.  That will be a real upgrade in
difficulty and require learning to program a PLC.  So if I sound lost now, just wait until
I start that project...
