I seem to have lost the modify post button, anyway the file in the link above is the macropump.m1s file I used.

It's here...

I presumed they were all the same, but looking inside it maybe it can be fixed if you know what it all means :)

Neither of these seem  have a ToGo button press so maybe you have a different macropump?

This was the exact file I used, the device came with nothing so I did a google, came up with that link and downloaded it.

There is nothing in the macropump, that I can see anyway, that is calling the ToGo button (OEM 333), you sure its the ToGo button that is invoked by the Origin button? Dont even see mention of origin in the macropump either, so dont really know which button it is.

Yes, pressing origin just operates the to-go button in mach.

I have emailed the guy but will likely end up returning it through lack of support.

I agree with Hood - there is nothing in that macropump that operates the togo button. In fact all that macropump does is set the jog modes and axis selection. Forgetting buttons for a moment - if your machine jogs when you turn the handwheel it has nothing to do with that macropump so either it's not the one that is actually running or you MUST have either a Brain or a Plugin running.

Why not post a link to what you downlaoded.

That WAS the file I downloaded.

All I did was turn macropump on in config, turn on modbus support, put the file in the plasma macro directory and it started working, but not quite right.
