Tray question

I brought in g code into easel and doing the circle tray, all of the vectors came onto the field correctly except for on. it has the center point on the lower left ( home point on my machine) , most of my project is off the field. how do I move it to all be on the field.
Thanks Rick

That’s normal, your project will start in the middle of your material

Maybe to clarify a little, the G-Code was generated by the design software you are using to have the Work Home position be in the middle of your stock. Your Machine Home position is NOT relative to the Work Home position. It is exactly the other way around. When you Home the machine, the Machine Home position is set at the Homed position based on your limit switch positions. The Work Home position is set as an offset from that Machine Home position when you set it in the Carve process in Easel or the machine uses the offsets available in the EEPROM of the controller if you “Use Last Home” position.

So when you go to carve your design, make sure to set your Work Home position in the center of your stock. You would also want to place the stock slightly off the hard limits of the Machine Home position to prevent any inadvertent crashing or limit switch activation situation.
