When I put my proma in test mode it shows arc on and up on proma and in diagnostic it shows torch up, torch on, no movement from torch though. When I run a gcode, it starts, moves to position, fires the plasma and doesn’t move, just continues to blast.

Don't jump ahead to live testing UNTIL you get torch moving up and down under test - you will dive into a world of problems, trust me, been there ;)

Get torch bouncing up and down with Proma in test mode first - it must move or you on a hiding to nowhere.

Should it be toggled on flashing?

Everything seems to be aware of the PROMA and it’s getting the inputs in the diagnostic screen.. it’s just not moving. M1 Home And M3 home are also flashing on diagnostic screen

I don't think M1 & M3 should be flashing just the torch up, torch down should be alternately flashing and torch on should be on.


Is mach3 out of reset i.e. in run mode?

I got Z axis running under test mode, making movement up / down and recognizing itself in mach3. What is M1 home m2 home and m3 home? My M3 Home is lit up with torch on, m1 Home is lit with torch up, m2 home is lit up with torch down.

When I run a gcode with THC on and trying to operate with it, the Gcode moves to the pierce point, pierces and then gets stuck. If I click stop, it will jump to the next line in code and begin to make its way to the next pierce point, where it does the same thing. Any ideas?

I’m using sheetcam, could my post processor have something to do with it?

M1 M2 M3 home are the home liit Switches from X Y and Z axis.
so it Looks like you have  configured home Limits (Config -> Ports&Pins -> Inputs) to the same port and pin like the torch signals.
