[title] Alignment Panel Test: Part 2
[* green] Use the directional pad on the Alignment Panel (green box in image 1) to move the '''red crosshairs''' to the dot in the middle of the circle, as shown in image 2. The red crosshairs show the '''Laser Head's physical location relative to where it'll be when etching that exact part of your image.'''
[* yellow] You can also use the X and Y boxes, shown in the yellow box in image 1, to more finely move the red crosshairs/Laser Head.
[* black] If you need to, move your material so that the blue dot lines up exactly with its center. This is how you physically align your material.
[* red] Using the X and Y directional pad, move the red crosshairs around to each corner of the square, as shown in image 3.
[* blue] At each corner, look at the blue dot inside of BoXZY. This is where each corner of the square will be etched onto your material.
[* black] In the Process Panel, click the '''Print''' button to begin the Square Circle image and watch BoXZY perform the Alignment Panel Test. After the test is finished, press your '''physical e-stop''' and(remember to twist and release the e-stop before attempting to resume using BoXZY) and examine your Alignment Panel Test. It should look similar to the Square Circle image.Test
