    Hello,

    I’ve done a few projects now and I’ve been moving my router to the X, Y and Z points I want using the smart controller, then resetting the Rambo board so it starts up and thinks its at 0,0,0. Is there a better way of doing this? On my 3d printer I can put start g-code in the slicer and it just adds it to every g-code it creates automatically. Is there a way of making the board reset the coordinates to 0,0,0 at the beginning of the g-code rather than resetting the board?

    Thank you

    If you have firmware limit those are respected.

    This is the way I do it, moving the machine when powered down is alien to me.

    There’s an option in Estlcam that allows setting the start g-code, where you can put the G92 X0 Y0 Z0

    Do you have dual end stops on your MPCNC?

    If you do you can home to the same location every time.

    I have the parts to do it, but I want to eventually 3d print with it as well so I just have the regular firmware for now.

    I think that G92 X0 Y0 Z0 will work for me for now.

    Thank you
