Running the machine

Ok, I have written some G-code and am getting close to start trials on milling my first parts.

This is what you need to have in place for stuff to work:

- Machine set up in the software.
The software needs to know how to run the machine. How far it can move the axes, in what direction and at what speeds.
- The point where to start machining, known as the home position.
Because I will be milling quite a lot of symetrical parts I have decided x to be the open end of the machine, y the middle of the bed, and z 10 mm above the highest point of y. All movement will be calculated by the software based on the machine set up and the data given in the G.
