First test run

Post by Gunny Rogers »

Ran my CNC Piranha for the first time. Confused: When the machine started running, instead of starting at 0.0:0.0 on the bed it started in the lower right quadrant. Is that normal or how do I correct it to the center of the bed?

Where did you define the XY zero in the job setup?

Thanks for the reply. I discovered that I was supposed to designate my 0:0,0:0 prior to turning on the machine. This is a learning experience after all.
