    I think the OP does not understand geometry offsets and or setting a part origin. Seems like he is working the machine coordinate system.

    Didn't want to scare you off, just letting you know what you would need to do. The ladder rung (NET in Fanuc speak) is really simple. Forum formatting does not work so well to illustrate this but...

    Communication error between CNC and a drive. Any alarms showing on the drives?

    Check for good clean cable connections on the data cable from the CNC to the drives. It's a daisy chain cable.

    Alarm 90 usually means the one rev pulse on the encoder occurs too close to the point that the decel switch turns off again. Usually this happens after re-mounting a motor or encoder or a new decel...

    Per your pictures of the hardcopy ladder, if CNTS is 1 and TCNT is 1 then CNT should be 1. Since CNT is still 0, I think that your hardcopy ladder and the ladder loaded in the control do not match...
