The origin points on your CAD drawings and the material that you're cutting have to match.Several methods, tools and techniques make the job easier.In the first post in this CNC Skills series on Origin Points, I emphasized how critical reference positions are for digital woodworkers.
When you're working on a drawing in CAD, the origin point is at the intersection of the X, Y and Z axis.All measurements — positive or negative, begin at that point.By the numbers, that's X=0,Y=0,and Z=0.
It's from that position that the piece you're cutting is positioned.As you'll soon see, there's a lot of ways to do this.It's a good practice to understand and be able to use a number of techniques, even if you end up adopting only a few as your methods of choice.
The first challenge is setting the intersection of the X axis and the Y axis on a board in relation to its position in your CAD drawing.We need to establish an origin point on the corner of a board.There are a couple of advantages to using a corner.
For one thing, once you've found it, it can be used as a reference point...
