That's assuming that X0, Y0 is in the "bottom left" corner?
    Yes Sorry did mean to say move tool not table(changed it now) Was just a test really to see if you where paying attention. . . . . You should always think of it has tool movement not table.

    If you think of it has X+ moves the tool to right but the actual table will move left, like wise Y+ will moves the tool towards back of machine but table comes towards you. Z+ moves the tool away from the table. . . Hope this is clearer.!!

    Check this HSM CAM handbook out because it has some good guides on coordinates etc. .
