Adjusting the Jogging Index Amount when Moving the Origin?

We are finding a discrepancy between where Wam says we are cutting in the bed vs where we are actually cutting.

Is there any way to change the index value of the “move origin”? It seems to only move in increments of 10 when jogging which is too large. Is there a way to adjust this value to get more percision?

Or adjust the cut bed/constant offset so that it is truer to what Wam says?

Hey @alindberg - Thanks for joining the community forum and sharing your feedback!

It sounds like you are already familiar with the origin and it’s location but let me go into some detail:

For all cut features, the origin is the top left corner of the Cut Extents. “Cut Extents” are an imaginary rectangular box that completely covers all of the cut feature. It is normally displayed as a box with black dotted lines (see picture).

The X and Y Position shown in the “Scale and Position” menu of WAM are the coordinates of the “Origin” on the cut bed. The “Origin” is the top left corner of the “Cut Extents”. You can imagine the cut bed is in the forth quadrant of a graph. When preparing a cut file, the normal Order of Operations is the cutting head will move to the “Home” location, and then travel to the “Origin” location.


However, there may be some discrepancy between the virtual cut bed location and the real cut bed. This is because over time the cut bed will begin to wear or warp/balloon. For the most repeatable location finding, we recommend finding the ideal origin location, fixture the sheet of material to the bed in the ideal location, and then using that reference tighten down other materials into the corner of the material sheet so this can be re-used again in the future.

The move origin feature will move in 10mm increments - unfortunately this increment cannot be changed. I have shared this feedback with the Dev. team in hopes of improving in the future.
