Status Line Message and DRO Readings
« on: October 28, 2012, 12:22:37 PM »
Perhaps this message on the status line was there before and never notice it but I just loaded a new gcode and the status line says: “Min –Z -.0625”. I know that .0625” is my depth of cut but does this message indicates something else that I should be aware?

Also I set my piece to be cut in the center of the table, bring the tool to where I want to start my cut, zero the DRO but the DRO indicate:
X -0.0000, Y +0.0000, Z -0.0000, A +0.0000
Why some are minus and some plus? Something I'm doing wrong?

The message is a comment in your g-code, in ( ).
Everything in the g-code in ( ) will be displayed in the status bar.
