Open mpfan in your editor. SAVE A COPY BEFORE MAKING CHANGES!!!! Call it stable or backup or whatever you choose.

Save backup copy. Now save a copy and call it testing or new, etc. Make only small changes at first until you begin to understand whatyou are doing ! Post an nci file with original post and new post. Note the changes: You are now on your way. Here are a few clues...... look through and edit the numbered questions within the post first: some basic things can be changed easily here such as rotary output "A" axis bein g posted or omitted can be changed in Numbered question 164 just change "yes" to "no" or "1" to "0"
