for some reason i turned the stepper motor connections around bc when i went -Y direction the plate would go +Y direction and so did the other axises.
after i did that and connected the end stops it moved fine.
but now i have a new problem:
the bed plate goes back and forth but when it reaches Y=0 on the indicator, it will not move past it to the negative spectrum.
any explanation on that?
should the printer be coordinate (0, 0, 0) at a corner or in the center of the bed?
