[title] BoXZY and the BoXZY Interface
[* red] In your BoXZY Interface select the '''Connect''' button, located at the top left corner of the interface
[* icon_note] You may hear a single ''Click'' sound come from BoXZY, do not be alarmed this is typical. This sound is the motors receiving power
[* green] The '''Connect '''button will now be ''green'' and will read '''Disconnect'''
[* icon_note] There are two basic segments of the BoXZY Interface. On the ''Left side'' you have your 3D view window and on the ''Right side'' you have your settings and control menus
[* blue] On the Right Hand side of the BoXZY Interface ''select'' '''Manual Control''' from the row of settings and control ''Tabs''
[* blue] The Manual Control tab is the mission control center for moving and controlling your BoXZY Attachment Heads
[* icon_note] BoXZY is a CNC machine, CNC is an acronym for Computer Numerical Control. Your BoXZY Interface will allow you to send commands to your BoXZY through CNC code, these commands are called Gcode
[* icon_note] AfterWhen an '''.stlSTL '''file is slicedprepared for 3D Printing, a CAD model (in this case .STL) is made"sliced" or broke down into a '''CAM'''Gcode file orwhich are the machine command lines. This also happens when an '''Image''' file is loaded into the BoXZY Laser Interface, the files arefile is translated into GcodeGcode. In the case of the laser this happens automatically.
