For questions regarding the "homing" (positioning to a known location) of 3D printing devices.

The process of determining the location of a 3D printer nozzle in three dimension using a reference point (home location) is referred to as "homing". Homing should occur before every print and involves bringing the X, Y and Z-Axis motors to predefined limit locations (usually these are end stops). Pre-recorded homing data offset values determine the position of the build plate origin with respect to the end stop locations.

Use this tag for all issues related to or during the process of homing a 3D printing machine.
