[title] Sending single lines of Gcode to your BoXZY
[* black] '''Gcode''' is the code that controls BoXZY. The purpose of the Interface islanguage BoXZY understands. It's how BoXZY knows what to allowdo. 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
