Upgraded to 2.9 and stuck on 4.6. Add PlasmaC To Base Machine
Line 190 of thc.hal:
net LimitZ parport.0.pin-15-in => or2.2.in0
expects a limit switch on parallel port pin 15, do you have that?
if not you could try changing the line to:
net LimitZ parport.0.pin-15-in-not => or2.2.in0
or even commenting it out but I have no idea what the repercussions would be...
Thanks Phill I didnt see this reply I might of skipped it but this worked thanks

Just add G0 X0 Y0 before the last M30 in your file but it might be prudent to also add another G0 command to lift the Z axis to a safe height before this (ask me how I know?)
I would venture a guess at collisions !

Inkscape does that always, in that it adds a G0 X0 Y0 Z0 at the end of every gcode file.
You just need to ensure that your safe height is really a safe height then put a G0 Xnnn Ynnn move after your last cut.
Edit: Which has just shown up a bug in the GCode parser, it isn't commenting Z moves correctly.
Inkscape comes with gcodetools installed and ready to use, it is very useful and does pretty much everything for 2D and some things for 2.5D milling/cutting/laser/plasma.
