Now that we have verified that the motors are moving in the right direction and the end stops are triggering correctly, we can try our first homing commands.

On the Machine Control tab, click the Home buttons for each axis, starting with X.

Warning! If the direction of movement is not towards the end stop, kill the power to the printer immediately.

When the printer starts to move, immediately press the endstop switch for the axis with your finger. Movement should stop, the direction should briefly reverse, and then try to home again. Trigger the endstop once more.

Warning! If the movement does not stop when you trigger the end stop, kill the power to the printer immediately.

When homing X the print head should move to the left towards the end stop switch.

When homing Y the bed should move to the back towards the end stop switch.

When homing Z the gantry should move down towards the end stop switch.
