[* icon_reminder] Lower Z platform to create the clearance you need to mount your material. Move it down far enough so that you can '''temporarily''' set in the Milling Attachment to use the bit for alignment.
[* icon_note] The upcoming ''Milling Test file'' does not cut all the way through the material, so you do not need to use the sacrificial board for the following steps.
[* black] Place a piece of wood that is at least''' 3.5" x 8" x 0.5" '''in dimension onto your Milling Platform. Align the 8" length so it's parallel with the movement of the Y axis.
[* black] '''Firmly secure''' the wood to the platform. We used nuts and bolts, as shown in the third image, but we recommend first time users [guide|139|clamp their material|stepid=779] before running the Milling Test File.
[* icon_note] For the Milling Test file, you can clamp downicon_reminder] Make sure your materialclamps or bolts are outside of BoXZY's range of travel. Sometimes, you'll need to clamp within BoXZY's range of travel. In this case, you avoid crashing the machine into your clamps by setting an X and Y offset.
