[title] Sending single lines of Gcode to your BoXZY
[* black] '''Gcode''' is the code that controls BoXZY. The purpose of the Interface is to allowlanguage BoXZY understands. It's how BoXZY knows what to do. When you to interact with, visualize, and send this codepress a button in the interface it automatically sends Gcode to BoXZY. Gcode files for 3D printing and laseringYou can be produced inside the interface. For milling, it must be produced by a CAM program like Autodesk Fusion. You are also able to enter Gcode commands manually.this code manually
[* blackblue] Select the ''X Home button, the Y Home button ''then ''the Z Home button'' to move all 3 axis to their OriginHome position
[* blackred] 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'''
[* greenicon_reminder] Gcode is case sensitive and requires that spaces be used between code segementsto formatting. Only enter it in exactly as shown.
[* green] To send this Gcode to BoXZY from the BoXZY Interface press your '''Enter''' button after typing the Gcode or selectclick the '''Send''' button
[* greenicon_note] The '''G1''' command is the '''Go To''' command. This means our example Gcode ''G1 X80''"'''G1 X80'''" is telling BoXZY to move the Attachment Mount along the X axis to the location that is 80mm away from the OriginHome 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'''Z30'''. That will move all 3 axes at once to varying positions. Give it a try
