How to send print head to home?

Thu Feb 16, 2017 2:46 am

How do I send the print head to home after it is done printing, as opposed having it stop where it last printed?

Currently this is my ending script.
G28 X0 ; home x-axis
M104 S0 ; turn off extruder
M140 S0 ; turn off bed
M84 ; disable motors

I think it moves at the end for some print jobs, and for other print jobs it stay where it last printed.

Help please!

The "G28 X0" command should already home the head. So there should be no other changes required.

I think you'd need
G28 X0 Y0


This should home you on the X and Y axis

Just make sure you include the "X0" or the "X0 Y0" part! If you just put "G28" without it, then it will home the Z-axis too which would obviously cause problems at the end of the print!
