Dear all,

I am trying to change the startingf position of the nozzle from the left from corner to the centre of the building plate. This because i made some modification to the printing head and now is more large than normal, so it crash on the corner before reach the end stops.

anyone know how to modify this setting?

many thanks :mrgreen:

    It is possible to flash a firmware were 0.0 is in the middle (there is still homing involved I would guess). But if you print head bumps in the corners it is better to make a modification to the endswitches so you can home again. Otherwise you have to position it in the middle and how would you know if that is correct. If you want to print something covering the build plate you would like it to stop on the edge and not bump into it.

    Glue something on the end blocks or print some adapter so you reach the end switch.
