[title] Sending single lines of Gcode to your BoXZY
[* black] '''Gcode''' is created by the ''Slicer''code that controls BoXZY. The purpose of the Interface is to allow you useto interact with, visualize, and send this code to BoXZY. Gcode files for 3D printing and lasering can be produced inside the ''CAM software'' you use for Milling(such asinterface. For milling, it must be produced by a CAM program like Autodesk Fusion 360) but youFusion. You are also able to enter Gcode commands manuallymanually.

[* black] Select the ''X Home button, the Y Home button ''then ''the Z Home button'' to move all 3 axis to their Origin
[* black] The BoXZY Gcode sender input line is denoted by the ''red box ''in the first image
[* green] Type the following into your Gcode sender line: '''G1 X80'''
[* green] Gcode is case sensitive and requires that spaces be used between code segements
[* green] To send this Gcode to BoXZY from the BoXZY Interface press your '''Enter''' button after typing the Gcode or select the '''Send''' button
[* green] The '''G1''' command is the '''Go To''' command. This means our example Gcode ''G1 X80'' is telling BoXZY to move the Attachment Mount along the X axis to the location that is 80mm away from the Origin Location on the X axis which is typically the Origin Limit Switch location(the Home position)
[* black] If you want to move more than one axis at a time you can do so. One example is '''G1 X10 Y20 Z30'''
