Thanks Jason
I know what the problem was now.
The setting steps per unit was set to 508.(after using Axis Calibration)
In this case the returned values are never zero.
Changed the value to 500 and all works fine now.
It took me 2 days to find this problem ::)

So I've added this to my Mach3 but I don't know how I'm supposed to actually use it. The 'Load HPGL file' just opens a white box saying cancel /ok. No file browser, no clue as to where this box is looking.

Seems like everyone else here knows how to use it since it's never been mentioned.

Thanks.

Yes you are the first reporting this problem.
For this screen to work it needs a folder called HPGL in where all the hpgl files are stored.
The first time you start the screen it creates this folder automaticly.Maby there was a problem creating it
and you must create one manualy.
Please let me know if this was the problem.

Yeah when I looked around in the mach3 folder I saw the HPGL folder so I thought it was related. There was already some sample file in there, I put mine in there anyway but there's still nothing listed inside the mach3 program.

It's the only thing running on an XP machine, I'll go take another look at the workshop later today and make sure I didn't miss anything stupid. Have you got anything to recommend I try? or some more information you want?

Thanks for the replies.

If you can find the time you can try this version with some error reporting changes.
Hopefuly it reports an error number insted of a blank box so i can trace the problem.
Thanks.....

I'm afraid the above image is what I see when running your debug set. you'll also notice I've got windows explorer open at the location of the hgpl files.
Not shown in the windows explorer is defold.plt & .txt that are already there.

Thanks for the time and effort m8, im afraid i cant help you with this.

If you are into basic programing you can play around with the code.
By selecting Operator > Edit button script you can see and modify it.
Also you can try if the same problem exists on another computer.
