I was trying to cut a piece that was 33 inches long. I have an XXL and that was longer than my HDZ could reach on both sides.
I turned the board to 45 degrees so it would be able to be cut on my XXL. The problem was originally I had the origin set as the lower left corner. After turning the project to 45 degrees I could not figure how to set the origin so it would cut a slot that centered one inch from the bottom of the project that was 3/8 inch wide and 3.8 inch deep.
I will attach the project but wanted to know how others may have solved the problem. Originally I had the material set to 3.5 inches tall and 33 inches wide and was trying to use a #201 bit. When I turned the board to 45 degrees I increased the material to 33x33 inches.
The board I wanted to cut was 3.5 inches by 33 inches long with a slot cut centered 1 inch from the bottom that is 3/8 inches wide by 3/8 inches deep. This is an auxiliary fence for a Rockler Cross Lap Jig. This longer fence to to make cross laps for a torsion box I am making. I have a Tee slot bit that I will run through and make a Tee slot for toilet flanges to go through to attach the jig to the backing fence and to the Incra 1000SE miter gauge.
So to figure out the limits of the XXL should I just jog to the lower left corner and when the machine stops moving in X and Y make that the origin and then from the origin the cut will be made relative to the origin and hopefully if I have placed the cut in the right place it will cut where I want it.
I think that originally I had the material set to 33" x 3.5" but did not have a box that was 33" x 3.5" I only had the slot I wanted to cut. So when I turned it 45 degrees I only turned the slot with no corresponding 33" x3.5" box around it that was originally my material size.
I started my torsion box. Tomorrow I will start to cut the half laps in the grid.
