    Hi, wellcome to the forum. You can't be that stupid or you would not have joined!!! We have some very knowledgeable members north of the border so I am sure you will soon get sorted. 900x600, thats a very useful size, what machine have you bought? G.

    Anytime Fivetide, looks like you're near enough to come and look at the settings for yourself :)
    (Have to own up to having help from Jazzy though with my set up)

    The Eagle machines with DSP do't not require 'setting up' they work out of the box.

    You load a .nc code file to a USB memory stick, then put the memory stick into the DSP handle, then load and run the program after setting your zeroes on your material.

    If you need more help let me know.

    Colin, high we spke before when I bought the CNC off you , just a quick question about NC, it runs fine but no matter what feed rate I set in the g-code I always have to crank it down to 10% in NCStudio or it cuts a tiny size of the original, do you have the same problem ?

    Sorry, I am getting a mixed message from the post, are you suggesting that altering the feed rate scales down the design?
