Homing Question
« on: October 08, 2018, 04:06:09 AM »
My Z home switch location is located about 6 inches below the maximum Z axis travel. Sometimes my program ends with the Z axis stopping above the home position. If I start the machine the next day and I home the Z axis and forget to lower the Z to below the home position, the head travels up to the top until it trips the over travel. Is there a way to offset the Z home position to the top of the travel so this problem will not happen?

Not sure how that would help? You can use the Home Offset value in Config > Homing Limits to move the home (Machine Z zero) position.

Why is your g-code sending the Z axis so high? That's what you need to fix, imo.
