  • Manual x and z movement

    Hi new cnc owner here. I hopefully got a simple question for you. What would I type in wincnc to move my x axis 1.8565” to the left and what would I do separately to move the z 1.6065” down.

    thanks Jason

    Do you need the axis zeroed in a new spot or are you just trying to move manually in WinCNC for another reason.

    If you need to rezero an axis at that exact spot. I would zero XY, type X-1.8565, zero XY. That will move your machine to the left 1.8565 then rezero. You can do the same with Z. Zero, Z-1.6065, zero.

    If you are needing it to move for some other reason like when you are cutting, make sure that is done in the toolpath and not manually in WinCNC.

        Or... If you simply want to move that distance, you can type in L91 X-1.8565, etc
