[title] Setting the Z axis Start Point
[* black] With your Milling Bit above, ''not'' on, your material move your Milling Attachment back to the ''User Home'' we defined earlier, if it is not there already
[* black] Our Milling.Test.Gcode.NC file requires that we set the ''Z axis Start Point'' flush with the top of your milling material
[* black] Setting the '''Z Start Point''' tells BoXZY where the bottom of the milling bit is. BoXZY does not know where the milling bit is until you manually define where it is
[* black] With your milling bit directly over the ''X0 '' and ''Y0'' User Home position unlock your Milling Attachment and gently set the milling bit directly onto your material, as shown in the ''second image''
[* icon_note] You may need to move your milling platform '''up''' by using the ''Manual Control ''tab. You '''do not''' want the Milling Attachment pushed all of the way down in the Attachment Mount
[* black] It is ideal to have your Attachment Mount bottom close to flush with your Milling Attachment, as seen in the'' third image''
[* icon_reminder] Make sure you lock your Milling Attachment into the Attachment Mount firmly and check that it is tight, you do not want your Milling Attachment to become loose during your Milling File
[* black] Type '''G92 Z0''' into your Gcode Sender and select '''Send'''
