Are the positive directions on the X and Y axis of your mill setup according to industry standards, and right hand coordinate system?
Note all motions are stated as the tool moving relative to the work.
On a vertical C frame type bed mill.
X plus the tool moves to the right, table would be moving left.
Y plus the tool moves away from you, table would be moving at you.
Z plus the tool moves up.
