I'm in the process of building a 3D printer and have all the stepper motors wired up and the controller connected to the computer running pronterface.

I can move each axis and also send g-code to the printer.

Now how can I define the current position to be the 0/0/0 position? I'd like to move the printer into a position where I think should be the zero position and define it as such in pronterface somehow.


G92 X0 Y0 Z0

tells the printer that the current position is (0,0,0).


There's a handy list of G0-codes at http://reprap.org/wiki/G-code -- though the list is too big to be convenient for finding a code if you're not already sure what it's called... :(
