    Default Homing Mach3 mill to the centre of the table

    Hi,
    I am wanting to get my Mach3 based milling machine to home permanently to the middle of the working surface rather that to the far left/front corner. Can you help please?
    Cheers.
    Bill.

    Usually the way you do that is by establishing offsets from the machine zero position to the position where you want to start. The home/limit switches have to be at the end of the travel, or you'd keep hitting them in the course of a job. Here's an explanation of how to do it: https://www.cnccookbook.com/g54-g92-...ts-cnc-g-code/
