Hi Vahid,

Stairdesigner doesn’t export gcode only raw DXF.

The G54 origin is set by your CAM software.

If you are using Vcarve you can set up different off sets simply by setting a material offset:

(Sorry I only have the French interface on Vcarve on my computer)

An easier way to work with different offsets is to set them in the machine controller.

The way to do this depends on the controller you have on the machine.

But in general you will be able to choose or type in the G54 value as you need them directly on the machine before you place the parts.

This makes all the Vcarve setups the same.

Hope this is helpful,
