I asked that question a few years back and the answer I got was
nothing. Hope some one chimes in and has a suggestion.

Do you want it to back farther away from the switch after homing?
If so, change the Ref All script to something like this. This will move the Y 1 unit off the switch.

Is there a reason you want to do this?

As for me, I have a BP clone and do wood working on it. I want to home the machine,
especially X and have it move off the switch so I have some wiggle room to change
bits etc. Y & Z are no problem for me.
