I added an air router to my printer and moved the end point. How do I modify where my impression zone begins?

I added a metal piece to the structure of my Anet A8 with the propose that the new air rowter don't crash whith it, in this way the x axis end point sensor stops there. It works, but the printing area moved 20mm. Everything I want to print appears 20mm moved, before I only ran the piece 20mm outside the printing area in Cura and it was printed as I wanted, now it is not possible to do this.

 

How can I modify where the print zone really is?

    It's all about the build plate size and the Home Offset X value.  In Cura, the build plate size is in the machine settings.  in the printer the home offsets are changed using M206 and then saved to memory with M500.  When you change the Home Offset, you effectively move the build area because the printing 0,0,0 changes.

     

    A picture or two would be good.  It's hard to get a feel for what you need to do.
