How to set XY Zero position

New Answer

First, move the tool into position with your keypad, set it to where you want your 0,0 location to be as exact as you can get it.

After it is in your XY zero location, go to Tools->ShopBot Setup [TS], this will step you through some tool setup questions. You want to get to step 3 (which is the XY prox switch setup), this page has a “Click Here to Make it Easy on me” button that you want to press, a new window will open up, click to start the XY zero setup routine.

This will prompt you to move to the 0,0 location with the keypad, just hit ‘No’ at this step, then hit ‘Yes’ to zero at this location.

This will run the homing routine and setup your 0,0 location from there on so the next time you run the C3 (XY home) it will end up where you set it up.

Click next through the rest of the steps and you are done!
