    I was getting started with OpenBuilds Control software. What is the "Size Check" feature do? I clicked on it and my router gantry started moving - I E-stopped it before it quit moving.

    Draws the bounding box of where the job is in XY space

    Helps you to check if the job fits your stock.

    Or for laser, helps to see if you are right where you want to burn

    Position it above the workpiece, do the setzeroes. Then run checksize after loading gcode
