Handibot Carves seems offset & carves into its own side

Posted by antona 
I just got my handibot a week ago and I came in today and made a Design in vcarve on an 8x8 section. When I exported the toolpath into Fabmo and started the job, the tool path started further to the right then it should have and by the end of the carve the bit was hitting the side of the handibot. It seems as if the bit is starting two inches further to the right than it should have been. With this in mind I calibrated my handibot again in fabmo and made sure the bit was supposed to start at 0,0 in vcarve and fabmo. I am very new to the software and CNC so any help to advice would be great. Thanks.
The cutting area of the handibot is actually 6x8 — so if your file is set up to cut on a full 8x8 you would be running out of travel on the right side of your cut. Try changing the material size in vcarve to 6x8 and check if your design fits within the white work area.
