I just got my x-carve set up and it carved fine. Stupid question but how do I send the machine to the home position? Is this possible? I have the homing switches but need more instructions on using them. Thank you.
I am a newbie. I did my first carve yesterday, and when I pushed carve it asked me if I wanted to send it home.
Other wise I jog it over if I want to send it home, I assume.
$H through the console.
At the risk of sounding stupid what do you mean through the console? Do I use the X-Controller in some way or is this through the computer? Not sure what the console is.
Thank you for the response.
Console => Open Easel, click Machine -> Advanced -> Machine Inspector
Inside you’ll see a Console command line.
Keyboard Shortcut : CTRL+SHIFT+D once Easel is opened.
Also before carving you could select “Home the machine”.
The home function is only useful if you have a fix setup holding the piece to cut and you want to do something in the same position several times, otherwise is pointless.
Homing is usefull on any carve that might be aborted or for whatever reason need a re-start.
As work zero is stored, there is no need to re-establish work zero. Simply re-home and you are ready to carve, using the same work zero.
