z-axis home switch?

Postby cgriffin » Sun Jan 14, 2018 9:13 pm

Is it possible to add a z axis home switch, without much trouble? Where would it be wired in? What code would require editing?

With the extruders being adjustable, I don't see a reason we should manually set the Z height with every power-up.

Thanks.

No. There are already five Z-home sensors (hall effect), but they are unrelated to where Z-Zero might be for any particular combination of print head and build surface.

If you don't change heads or build surfaces, just send your printer to Z-Zero before you power down, and it'll be set when you power up.
