Hi @gideon and welcome to the forum!

You double-posted this, so I just joined the two topics and merged their tags, to avoid confusion for others.

So the solution is to home all the actuators of the 4D stage (piccard industries) using the manufacture’s software.

The “Acquire SPIM images” plugin will then start working. I guess it’s perferred moving the stage using the OpenSPIM plugin stage control. Using that of the manufacturer and then switching to try using that on openspim might not make the “Acquire SPIM images” plugin work

Hi everyone and @gideon!

This answer might come a bit too late for you but I think an easy fix for the problem is to check if in the hardware configuration wizard the ‘Default focus stage’ is set to ‘Picard Z Stage’.

Good luck!
