How to change X axis home location.

Post by weri32 »

Hello, I've purchased a slightly different stepper motor for the right stepper motor . The new stepper motor is longer than the original one , therefore when «homing» the X axis , the stepper motor hits the metal main frame and cannot go any further. The solution will be to move the «homing» position back 2 or 3mm. Please let me know of how we can change that.

Here is a video of the problem : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs0XcM6 ... e=youtu.be
Note : The black stuff on the heating bed is dried ABS glue or also called ABS juice and I apologize if it looks a bit nasty.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have 2 possible solutions for you.

Nr. 1
You can try to make the X - axis-carriage - "wing" which enters the endstop a bit larger ( maybe simple tape is already enough)

Nr. 2
Print a new holder for the endstop, so that it comes closer to the carriage ;)
