Sheetcam setup

Post by kimothy » Sun May 30, 2021 11:31 am

Screenshot (6).png
I am trying to set up Sheetcam and I keep getting the 2 squares. The darker one has the red work area, and I have no idea what the light colored gray one is for. I have searched around and can't find any info in the forums. Is it supposed to be like this or am I doing something wrong. Any help is appreciated.

one is the machine area (set up under machine)

the other one is job / material ..... they are offset because of your coordinates (I think). setup under job / material from memory (not in front of a pc)

I think you're right. It looks like you have the origins set differently. It's the little dots on the right side of the settings.

these 2 locations and layout need to be the same. You may have 2 different Origins selected, or using 2 different coordinates. :HaHa
