Reply To: Getting to my first print



Thanks Ryan!

I plan to use endstops just to prevent collisions at the extremes of the axes, just in case I get something wrong in the gcode, or manually try to move too far.

I have a couple of questions:

I understand that 0,0 is the starting point for the cut – is this the center of the design, or is it one of the corners?

I would like the tool to begin in the upper left corner of the machine and return there when finished. Is this referred to as “home”? Or is it “0,0”?

Thanks again for any help. I’m anxious to get to my first cut, but I need to solve this and my z axis problem first.
