    I'm trying to plasma cut holes out for a flange bearing in a piece of channel. I need them to be precisely located in the center of the channel. I have drawn them on the Torchmate CAD CAM, but it always sets the origin at the lower left corner when I show the cut path. I would like to set the origin in the middle of the drawing so that I can line up the torch of my Torchmate 4510 at the exact center of the channel and set the plate origin to cut out the bearing holes. Does anyone know how to program that? I have tried to change the origin under "Material Size-'origin selection'" but that only seems to change the origin location for the drawing of the part, not the cut path origin.

    Thanks
