3DLPrint X and Z Test

The title does not give it all away, but the following does! :

I'm running the X and Z without limit and home switches, but have been around enough to be confident in my abilities. Your mileage may vary. If you do not know how to operate CNC machines safely , I suggest you get someone who does, to do it. If you do not know how to be safe around electricity, get someone who does, to do it.

The cycle is:
1-Go to Bottom  ( X -5 )
2-Go to TOP ( Z zero )
3-Go to work coordinates of Z zero - 10.
4-Slowly move to Z zero ( the last 10mm )
5-Slowly raise to X zero.
6- Display slide and display black screen
7-Go to X -5 then Z- (10 times the slice thickness )
8-Go to Z zero and then X to zero.
The first 10 slides are for the Base of the object to be printed. The rest are the object itself + supports ( if any ).

I'm sure it will create a stir!
