« on: October 05, 2013, 09:19:31 PM »
 hello my name is Mike from Canada , im new to the cnc world,I have recently purchased a 3020 cnc router from china, the homing, and soft limits are set, the frustration is the tool path window. the work piece is outside the table view parameters, also when executing the Gcode generated from Photo V Carve the virtual tool path window and image looks and works fine, however the running cnc has little movement and no where the shape or size of the part
pls help. a new business depends on it

oh and one other thing the program and cnc did work properly and engrave properly, so something I have changed is the cause
thx in advance

Just a guess but perhaps you have changed the units from imperial to metric ? (Config / Select Native Units)
