    So in my first attempt to create my own project, I noticed when I boot up the CNC machine it sees the location its at as ‘zero’ and moving the router around to a better ‘starting position’ just results in the router moving back to ‘zero’ when I start a job for it. The work around I’m using right now is to move it where I want it, and power cycle it so it sees this new location as ‘zero’ there must be a better way to do this, I’m not sure if its something in estlcam or something in the actual board I need to change.

    You need to “set home offsets” in the LCD menu or add G92 X0 Y0 Z0 to your starting gcode. That will make wherever the tool is when you start the 0,0,0 point. You can add it as a macro in repetier if you’re using that too.

    ah, thanks! I’ll do the gcode solution.
