This is how you need to set up your design files so everything will cut correctly. That would be your homing point on your machine and that is what you said you wanted to use for your origin for design.

Here is a new file for you to draw. Since you are homed in the upper right-hand corner, home it then set X and Y to 0.00. Zero your Z axis (pencil) on the surface. Load and run the "New Test 5-9-2019" file and it should look like the picture.

The Test file has been replaced

The arrows file, if that is what you are calling the original "Axis Test" file, won't work with that origin point because it was designed with the origin in the center of the file.

Remember you said you wanted to use the home XY 0.00, 0.00 as your origin point of your design files and use your working area of 250mm X and 300 Y for size so all files from now on have to be designed with the origin in the upper right corner.

Rotate 90cw of course
You are a genius! And patient. Now I'm going to bask in the glow of success before I destroy it by trying my z parts.not even sure I need them but, I think it is my weakest point for accuracy. Although I think the pic looks great for just holding a pencil in the hole

I'm not sure what "switch x,y side in datum.x=300,x=250" means.

When we switched the table from x to y. In software the measurements where the same,so it was overshooting the ends.I had shut off soft limits too.
But it all seems good now.I'll try a few more with the pencil. That font worked but I tried a different one that kept saying open vectors,when I tried "close vectors' it said 'no open vectors found". Drives me crazy. But now I know it works,machine and post processing, so anything else is me learning!

Okay I'll leave the learning and testing to you.

I do suggest sticking to simple files for now until you get the basics down for your chosen software.

Good luck!
