Thanks for the info.  I'll do a little testing with that in mind.   

General Mach Discussion / x & y axis. What is going on?
« on: June 27, 2015, 09:41:06 PM »
Ok, so I recently build a Greenbull CNC from Buildyourcnc.com.  So far I haven't ran into any issues I wasn't able to solve via Youtube or Google.  Today, I thought I was at a point where I could cut out a stupid chicken I purchased from makecnc.com.  Well, All I had for material was a 4 x 8 piece of mdf.  I ran the DFX through Aspire and set it all up to run and exported the Gcode.  Great, looks like I'm about to have a big mdf chicken.  Now I'm in Mach3 and I load the Gcode.  Problems start here:

1:  For some reason mach3 seems to think my y axis is the longest part of my table.  It orientates the project so as to run the length of the project on the width of the table. 

2:  I never know exactly where the machine is going to start cutting.  I set it where I expect it to start, zero all of the axis and hit go.  It hauls ass across the table and starts where ever it seems to want.

That is all for now.  :)  Any ideas?
