I am alos configuring mach 3 to run and I have run into a problem with the emergency stop.
I have my limit switches for my axis in series and have tied my emergency stop to this also.
When I ref to zero the axis crashes the switch and does not stop. have I missed something in the set up?

I can see howto move the origin marker but how do I move the drawing to my X0Y0 point?
I think that would help also.

 ???

I have used several different programs to create drawings for export as dxf files to be loaded into lazy cam and then converted into gcode.
When I load the code into mach 2 my part is not where I want it on the router cutting area and the x axis movement is more than the area available in my routers cutting area.
Is the somewhere in the config that I can tell the mach program the size of the cutting area or is this done in lazy cam so as not to over drive my axis?
Example... when I jog from x-0.0 to x + I have a total dro of for example + 99000.
The x movement in my gcode calls for a movement of 176000.
where do I go to get these movements in sync?
What have I got set up wrong?   

I can be contacted at vtmeek@gmail.com   also
