Hey All, Im very new to CNC, have dont a little bit of 3d modelling etc with fusion and just recently purchased a second hand CNC. Machine seems to be running well and works fine, its just the operator.
The CNC is from what i can tell an x-carve clone on a tinyg controller.
What I have been trying to work out for the last few weeks which I have not been able to work out for the life of me, I have sent an entry point in Fusion 360 to the bottom left corner of a work piece. I have manually set the z height, and x/y to start at the bottom left of the work piece however from what i can tell, chilipeppr doesnt know that is the case and moves the cutter way off the work piece and starts cutting. I have drawn something out to hopefully explain this a little better.
Does anyone have thoughts as to how i can correct this? Full disclosure, the limit switches arent hooked up and I havent run through a homing cycle as yet. If this is the answer, I will pull my finger out and do this sooner rather than later.
