John,
May i suggest that you watch the following video for understanding.
Pay close attention to what is said around the 5 min mark.
Note what is said about using the display during the video.

Note that you can place have the origin of the work in Cambam anywhere you want.
Try this ( will assume that your machine has enough axis movement in all directions to machine the piece) place the figure so that the center of the figure is 0,0 thus the gcode generated will be about that point.
Post coming off the switches move to the approx center of the limits and zero x & y.
You will now have the figure approx in the center of your limits.

Just a way to do it,

Rich  :)
