X and Y axis
« on: October 14, 2010, 03:06:07 PM »
Hi, I have recently built a CNC mill and everything is ok until now. I have bought two cabinet building software and my axis doesn't seem to match with my set up. Let’s say my sheet of goods is 48x96 inches. When it is asked for the dimensions of the sheet my inputs are 48 for the width and 96 for the length. The software generates the Gcodes and in the Mach display window the sheet is in the wrong orientation.
In Mach Soft/limit drop down window my X and Y are identify has X to 60 and Y to 120, should I change this around or change the wiring on my drivers/motor configuration, in other words should the X be on the longer side (lengthwise of the  table)

Typically, the X axis is the longer axis. It sounds like that's what the cabinet software is expecting.
