Part Zero on a lathe is usually set to the front of the
part for Z=0, and the center of revolution for X=0. Program
your cad-cam system fron there, and set you machine
coordinate to the same position when you run the G-code.
If you have homing switches ( which we have just released a set)
You can use WCO - Work Coordinate Offsets and Tool Offsets
to adjust from your machine Home position to the relative part Zero.
