Homing Issues with Printrbot Simple
November 16, 2013 05:36PM

I recieved a Printrbot Simple a week ago, and I have assembled it and installed all the necessary software. Unfortunately, my printer is having many issues with homing. When I set the proper corner of the bed as "home" and attempt to run a print, the X axis presses against it's endstop (which screws up the belt quite a bit) and then the Z axis begins to move upwards with no intention of stopping. I figure that this is a problem with the homing, I am setting my home in printer settings as "x-min" "y-min" and "z-min" as the Printrbot documentation instructs me, and then I am moving it to the front right corner of the bed and clicking "set home". I have tried this multiple times, and it repeats the same belt-stretching action as before. Please help! confused smiley

I've not used a printrbot myself so I can't speak with any authority on this, but it sounds like the axis direction might have gotten inverted, is there any setting to change that?
