Just a quick one,

if you use vectric you may be able to answer this or even if you know your GCode.

I export the GCode as NC files because I use NCStudio on the machine.

What is happening is, the file cuts fine but it goes to the "machine" 0 point first and then returns to the work piece origin to start the job, this means that if I start a job anchored down in the middle of the bed it still goes off to the far corner before coming back. I do some small stuff that really only do a single hole or small pocket and it takes longer to go to the 0 point and then back than to finish off the job.

So I've post ed the first 20 lines or so of code below, to see if any one knows what I need to take out so the job basically starts from the work piece origin.

N20 G91 G28 X0.000 Y0.000 Z3.001

G91 tells the machine to move in reference mode
G28 tells it to return to reference point ...

this exactly is the code that tells your machine to start from work 0
N90 X0.000 Y0.000 F3600.0



if you dont understand from first read whats happening, then dont mess around, just change the HOME position of your machine to left nearest corner instead of middle of the machine.

or you could just raise the jog rate to the max by the motor tuning /velocity/ so all free non cut positioning movements will happen a lot faster.

line N90 is telling it to go back to the machine Zero with a feed rate of 3600 you can just take out the X0 and the Y0 or change the numbers to some where near your work piece is.
line N100 is taking you at rapid speed to the start of your job and line N110 is dropping your Z down to -3mm at the feed rate of 1200. ..Clive

Ahh I get it now thanks for that.. so if I set my machine home to front-left corner and position my work piece to as near to that as possible , and set the origin to bottom left in aspire, as well. It will or should start near enough at the work piece origin ?

Ah ! so if i take out x0 and y0 it will basically just start the work where I set the work piece origin ?
Can I take the entire line out .. -> N90 X0.000 Y0.000 F3600.0 or does it need the feed rate command to function ?

I would just take out the x and y zero

In Aspire or V Carve Pro, you can specify the "home" location, so it goes somewhere else other than 0,0.
You can also edit the post processor to remove that first move.

Hi Ger21 I've managed to reset the machine home to near to the work piece so its working OK now, thanks for the advice
