Welcome to te home CNC world!

Have you calibrated your machine? When you jog 10 inches (or 100 mm) does it actually move the distance you told it?

On DXFs, it's a very wide "standard" - different software use different features and what works for one might not for another. I see no end of questions and problems with them.

I've heard a lot of complaints about the Chinese control software. Can yours take GCode directly? I'd probably go that route. That way you can at least see what the machine is being told to do. If nothing else, you could make a really simple GCode program to cut a square to see if your machine is working correctly. A number of us here can talk you through that if you want.
