How to recalibrate or move the zero location of the X axis?

Recommended Posts

My x axis 0 , on my printer seems to be way to far away from the side of the wall.

According to pronterface, my ultimaker extended has a max x axis of 219, which seems way off, considering most people seem to have 229-230.

My x axis when sitting "0" is sitting 7.4 + mm away from the wall. So question is how can I move the x axis more to the left (closer to the wall), and make that zero?

How do i go about doing this?
