How to make my home position at back of bed plate?


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to make my home position at back of bed plate?

Currently, my printer stops at the left front corner after a print which makes it difficult to remove the magnetic bed plate to remove the parts. It also causes difficulty putting the bed plate back on.

How do I make my machine stop at the left rear corner?

I checked my settings in CURA, and the " origin at center" box is unchecked.

My printer is an Ender V2 S1.

    I found and Ender 3 V2 and an Ender 3 S1.

    The basic Ender 3 "Ending Gcode" should do that.  It can be adjusted in Cura.

    Click on "Settings / Printers / Manage Printers" and then click on Machine Settings.

    On the right side of the dialog is the Ending Gcode and this is from an Ender 3:


    G91 ;Relative positioning

    G1 E-2 F2700 ;Retract a bit

    G1 E-2 Z0.2 F2400 ;Retract and raise Z

    G1 X5 Y5 F3000 ;Wipe out

    G1 Z10 ;Raise Z more

    G90 ;Absolute positioning


    G1 X0 Y{machine_depth} ;Present print

    M106 S0 ;Turn-off fan

    M104 S0 ;Turn-off hotend

    M140 S0 ;Turn-off bed


    M84 X Y E ;Disable all steppers but Z


    The bold line is the one you want.  It has to go in after the G90 line.  You could also just copy and paste all of that in.
