Help Again
« on: June 30, 2016, 08:05:24 AM »
I am a newbie and have my 3040 machine all set up now. I have loaded the Gcode and I have the piece of wood on the bed. I have moved the cutter to the corner and I have then clicked each XYZ to 0 . When I click the start cycle it goes back to oo on the bed. How do I save the home to my work piece and not the bed.

Im running mach3

Much appreciated

when you zero XYZ does the current work offset reflect that? Can be seen on the 'offsets page'. Should
see also which workoffset is active, most commonly G54.
You may need to include a G54 command at the beginning of your part code.
