Hi,

how can i move the complete printerhead?

everytime when i try e.g manuell move material input, the head is on the left back side....

or can i pull and push it with my hand to the front? i dont think thats so cool for the drive if i do this....

You can manually move it by hand. The drive has protection against back feed.

Or you can install tinkergnome's Firmware which has an option to move head to front.

When it's on. As long as it's not printing :p

You can move it when you are in the move material menu

After a print, the head is free and can be moved around by hand. Occasionally it parks and it still under control then you can't move it, it simply feels solid.
