Is there a way to see where your origin for the file is set when you load gcode?

So for example i've set my origin in my cam software to top/left corner...is there some way to display this in Mach when the gcode is loaded??

Is there a way to have different views of your cutting paths?? for example, only display current path? etc....

Hi,
yes there is. If you go to the Home/Limits page of the Config menu there you can set the extents
of your table. If the Display Machine Boundries is checked on the Toolpath page then the table
extents will be displayed as a dotted line when you load a Gcode program.

Note that your part program may not be centered on your table but you can now jog so the 0,0 of your
part is centered within your table limits then zero x and y axes. A toolpath regen should then place the
toolpath of you part within the boundary of your table.

On the Diagnostics page you can see the machine coordinates of your part zero,the current work coordinates.
The Offsets page displays the same info.
