    Default Getting My Head Round Zeroing

    Trying to get my head around how to engrave on my Laser then outline cut on the cnc router? I'm not sure if you Laser first then move to cnc or the other way about. If I put a location mark and zero both from that point would that work? Just not sure how to go about this.

    To set it up you would use one of the corners, as long as that is you X0 Y0. and have the same in your drawing and Cam software, you should be good to go, machine first.

    If you need to set up a work jig etc coordinate system, look at G54-G59
