    I believe the machine needs to measure the sled and work surface to get started. Are you covering any open areas between the sled rails and carving board to fool the board sensor so it thinks it is seeing a board?

    Remember that the machine thinks the carving size is whatever the board size you set in Designer. It will only let you jog to areas which keep the carving (virtual board in Designer) on the measured board. I always make the board size in Designer only slightly larger than the actual carve region. That way, there is freedom to jog all over the real board.
