Newbie in need of help

I have been trying for days to carve my design on my 3010 cnc pro,
but when i start the carve the machine wants to start the carving outside the work area of the machine bed, which leads to the cutting motor hitting the end of the machine and grinds the motor, HELP PLEASE, what am i doing wrong.

Keith welcome to community,

you can position your work piece in shape and cut setting.


when you press FWD, does the bed move in the direction of the arrow, or the opposite direction? It is supposed to move opposite because the bed is moving and not the spindle itself. This is the most common issue on 3018 style cnc’s…
