Idk if you were looking for advice or not but I'm also new to the CNC game. I'm running a TL-1 and was able to become IPS friendly rather quickly. When IPS spits out code to MDI I've found it helpful to just go through n read the code, it's helped me learn to understand what's going on and to quickly alter the code if I need to make modifications. I'm sure you've been told this, but run your programs in Settings/Graphics with Single Block on and the Program being displayed (Press F4) before doing operations to help you understand what's going on. I also keep a copy of this (http://www.haascnc.com/training/Lath...20M%20Card.pdf) close by.
