[title] Alignment Panel Test: Part 2
[* green] Use the X and Y directional pad on the Alignment Panel to move the red crosshair to the dot in the middle of the circle we're trying to engrave. The red crosshair represents the physical location of the low power beam relative to where it will be when engraving that exact portion of your loaded image. This is how we align our material
[* yellow] You can also use the X and Y boxes (shown in yellow) to more finely move the red crosshair/Laser Attachment
[* icon_note] This will allow you to see where exactly each part of an image will etch onto whatever object you have placed in BoXZY. Remember, the actual position of the projected beam inside the machine is shown by the position of the crosshair over the XY plane
[* red] Using the X and Y directional pad, move the red crosshair around to each corner of the square
[* blue] At each corner, look at the projected blue laser dot inside the machine. This is the extent to where each corner of the square will be etched.
[* icon_reminder] Using the red crosshair can help you determine where your image will appear on your material
[* black] On the Process Panel, ''Select'' the '''Print''' button to begin the Square Circle fileimage and watch your BoXZY perform the BoXZY Alignment Panel Test. After the Test is finished, press your E-Stop on your BoXZY Power Supply and examine your BoXZY Alignment Panel Test. It should look similar to the Square Circle image
