    I’ve got a large 3′ x 6′ table. When I try to home, if the X has to travel anything greater than around 12″ the motors stop and Repitier shows a red error message saying there is a printer error. Any ideas what could be causing this? I’ve tried to find some sort of timeout in Repitier or the firmware, but haven’t noticed anything.

    First thing is homing isn’t really used on an MPCNC unless you have dual endstops and then you home X and Y but not Z. Which firmware are you running and how is your hardware configured?

    I’m running MPCNC_Ramps_T8_16T_LCD_32step. I’ve got endstops on X1 and Y1

    What happens if you home using the LCD controller.

    You should not be homing without the dual firmware.

    The thing you are seeing is it will only “home” for 200mm unless you change the firmware.
