    If you haven't already done so, you may want to try setting your registration mark (under contour options) to "Graphtec Type 1 Automatic". Good luck with your problem!

    LOL im like a pig in chit now.... I'm up and printing again,and no sooner than i started......Santana came on XM with the song I'm Winning and as i was singing it,i changed the words to I'm Printing.................................


    One day I was on the ground
    When I needed a hand
    And it couldnt be found
    I was so far down
    That I couldnt get up
    You know and
    One day I was one of lifes losers
    Even my friends were my ac-cus-ers
    And in my head
    Lost before Id begun

    I had a dream
    But it turned to dust
    What I thought was love
    That must have been lust
    I was living in style
    When the walls fell in
    When I played my hand
    I looked like a joker
    Turn around
    Fate must have woke her
    cause lady luck she was
    Waiting outside the door

    Chorus:

    Im Printing
    Im Printing
    Im Printing
    And I dont intend on losing it again

    Too bad it belonged to me
    It was the wrong time
    And I meant to be
    It took a long time
    And I knew for now
    I can see the day
    That I breath for
    Friends agree theres a need
    To play the game
    And to win again

    Chorus:
    Im Printing
    Im Printing
    Im Printing
    And I dont intend on losing it again

    Glad it's working but someone has some 'splaining to do. Either the descriptions of the problem were not correct and the error was indeed cumulative and not an absolute shift as described or else there's mice loose in the washroom.

    If the error was indeed cumulative and changing from type 2 to type 1 marks fixed it then one would just naturally suspect the plotter's Sensor Offset Adjustment of being less than optimum. There's another, far more esoteric, possible cause for these circumstances but it involves long division and trigonometric functions to confirm it.

    If the error was an absolute shift as described then fixing the problem by changing from type 2 to type 1 marks invokes some principle unknown to me and I'd really like a cogent explanation of the mechanism at work here.
