How would I setup my Fanuc Controller (J-30iB with StopTool) to operate a weld gun without a robot.  In the Controlled Start maintenance screen it shows there is a M-10ia/10M in group 1 and it will not let me clear that out.  Am I in the right place?

I am not sure this would work, but could you just disable group motion (under the test menu) and then run the torch? It is a bit out of my wheel house, as I don't work on welders that often.
Check out the position converter I wrote here!

Disabling the group in the test menu didn't fix the problem.  I am still faulted out with SRVO-075 pulse not established on Grp 1 axis 1.  I think the controller is expecting a robot to at least be plugged in.  I literally have the J-30iB controller without a robot at all.  There has to be a way to just disable group 1 at a lower level.
Thank for the help.

Weather you use the robot or not, it still needs to be connected.
