I think one of the points of confusion here has to do with the assumption that there is a fixed relationship between the drawing space and the bed space.
In other words that the drawing has an x,y zero point, and that once imported that point maps to some specific x,y point in the drawing interface (i.e. on the bed image), which then maps to a similar point in the physical machine.
Perhaps @dan (or @Tony) could explain how the drawing is imported (the first time) and a little bit about how the interface decides where to place it on the bed image.
Specific questions given an empty drawing with units in inches:
- If I put a 1" diameter circle centered on the 0,0 point of my drawing, where will it show up on the bed image.
- If I put a 1" diameter circle centered on the 6,6 (in inches) point of my drawing, where will it show up on the bed image.
The use case for this information is to understand how we can, for instance, engrave repeatedly on objects which have existing pre-printed text. I do understand there are ways to do this, I even described one already, but I think the thought experiment would answer the underlying question.
