nope....its like its ignoring every line of code until it gets to this one:  Code "G1 Z1. F50"    ' put the Z retract height you want here, must be greater than the touch plate thickness

- open Main Menue -> Operator -> VB Script Editor
- copy/paste into the Editor
- use  >|| button to excecute code line by line
- see what code is doing

Ok...I have discovered the my macro will run if I do connect my wires to the breakout board.   But as soon as I connect them the after starting the auto zero script the z axis stops and then retracts to said height of 1 inch that is in the macro.
So befuttled.  Been at this for 2 days.  Must be a wiring issue I think.  Just about ready to get a new breakout board...maybe its a grounding issue.  Very frustrating..Need Help!!!

there are a few possibilities for the failue:

-wiring
-electric noise on your wiring
-defective BOB
