If I go into config-> ports pins -> input, and disable all the THC ON THC UP THC DOWN inputs, then restart mach3, the SAME EXACT GCODE FILE will run no problems.

are you sure THC ON is comming when Plasma fires ?
Mach will wait for this signal until it starts X/Y

How can I make sure of this? Any if that’s the case then why won’t Mach wait for it when’s THC ON isn’t enabled?
What is my M3 MACRO? Sorry.

here a part of Mach3Mill_Install_Config Manual Appendix A Torch Height Controls
in Mach3

Notes:
• Turning spindle ON sets the THC correction to zero. Min/Max step counts are then effective from
the current Z.
• Only licensed versions can enable THC mode.
• When in THC mode, motion will not begin until THCON (Torch OK) signal becomes active.
Motion may be delayed by Pierce Delay.
• Pierce Delays tells the system not to move until delay seconds have passed since spindle (torch)
was turned on.
• Config/spindle Torch AutoOff setting shortens delay in takeoff, and also turns off torch automatically
if motion stops.
anything is possible, just try it.
