« on: February 21, 2019, 05:20:31 AM »
I have a new machine I am building and i want to have home in new location.

 Table display shows X right/left and Y up/down this part is OK. I need to have the home or table X0 Y0 in the lower right.

You can define Home position anywhere you want it to be.
The attached shows typical axis movements for a mill. See the link below and read pages
2,4,5 in the workbook.

Also read the the Mach Manual.

The actual axis direction of movement is a very controversial subject because it usually relates to the position the operator stands in relation to the machine and is usually defined (at least within Mach) as the direction the tool moves relative to the workpiece.

That Haas diagram is also confusing because it appears to show the direction of axis movement which would be incorrect - in fact it shows the direction of tool movement in relation to the workpiece.

This pic from my machine shows the actual direction of axis movement.
