BTW you do not have any axes set up in this profile, is it the xml from your machine?

no, this computer is in the house, not attached to the cnc router.  I move files with flash drives because I run the machine with an older XP computer not attached to the internet or network.

What software program are you using to create the G-code file? Can you provide a screen shot of the "PROGRAM RUN" as well.

I just opened the txt file... you are using V-carve. I see a possible problem... your screen shot has a "G90" setting (screen shot upper right hand side Mill-->) in it. The text file you attached should set a G91 (see line #110). Aspire and V-carve need a G91 setting for JI mode and should override the Mach default setting of G90 when loading a txt file. Something is overriding the V-Carve G91 and switching back to G90. Make sure the JI in Mach conf menu is set for "Inc" not "Absolute".

What version of Mach 3 are you using?

Sorry... I mean a G91.1 not G91.

well this may not seem like Rocket science, but I went from the xml file for this profile, went back to the default xml file and everything is just fine.  Since this computer isn't hooked up to the software, it doesn't matter.  I'd be crazy if I had to reconfigure the machine.
