you can do simple test of your calibration.

- jog your X-axis to the left (minus) side
- Zero x-axis
- put a mark somewhere to measure afterwards
- put F300 into MDI
- put G1X300 into MDI
- measure the distance


the toolpath Display is an other part, important is that your values in the axis dro's
are equal to the real movement.

so let's try to get one Problem solved by one.

tell us the first Problem, let's get it solved, than got the next.

So.  Does X axis move the tool or move the work? Moving tool means left is Zero, --, and Home. Right is + and ++.  Moving work means right is Zero, --, and Home.  Left is + and ++.
Does Y axis move the tool or move the work? Moving tool means to the front is Zero, --, and Home.  Moving work means Front is Home, +, and ++.  To the back is - and --.
Z axis is usually moving tool, so Up means Home, + and ++, and Down means - and --.

In general, ++ means + end Limit switch, -- means - end Limit switch.
- and + are for coordinate system and DRO increment, which makes the tool-path display orientation correct.  X increment to the right, Y increment to the rear, and Z increment upward.


all correct

does not matter wether the tool or the material is moving

allways
        Y+
         |
X-    ---   X+
         |
        Y-

you have allways to Looks where your tool goes on the surface of material (bird view).

normal home procedure is:

1.go towards Limit Switch until Limit Switch is hit
2.then ramp down with Motortuning->ACC
3.then go with lower Speed in reverse direction until Limit Switch is free

so if the rampdown pt.2. is to "soft" (low) and the Motor is not able to stop within the range the Limit Switch is
enabled (goes over the Limit Switch), then is in pt.3 the Limit Switch allready free again and it will finish
without reversing.

excuse my bad english

so what is the Problem?

would German be easier for you?
