Okay so now I'm on screenset 2010 .. earlier today I learned how to manually enter a coordinate and go to that on the MIDI tab in Mach3.  How do I do that function in screenset 2010 now, I do not see the midi tab?

Think I found out where the MDI is.


Another issue, a bit ago I was doing the simple zero Z routine and it was jumping back off the touch plate by like 10mm, now for some reason it is sticking right to the touch plate.  Any ideas?  Is
 this set under "clearance plane" ?

It could be, if the clearance plane is set to zero.

Yea that's just it, I had it at like 10 units. I have never in my life got such consistently different results from b trying slightly different ideas.. and alot of times trying the same thing over and over.

In the bay area (Hayward) , are you good at mach3? Hit me up to make some money tomorrow.. March 2nd. Message me.

Something is definitely wrong with your setup if it doesn't work with a value of 10, but it does with a value of 20.
What version of Mach3 are you using?
Parallel port or motion controller? If a motion controller, which one?

I'm in Detroit, 3 hours behind you.
