Tell us more about the machine. Does it use the Standard X, Y and Z axes?

Yes Mr FireCNC. The machine will use this axes and I want it to fully exploit its potential once it has been set

Well, we can now begin.
remember we are not starting everything from a scratch. Your machine should be armed with limit switches, movable tool sensor as well as a fixed tool sensor.
Its StepsPerUnit need be set correctly before anything else is done. This means the machine should be actually working.
I will come back shortly with the process of setting up the machine
