Default Zeroing Y

Got my machine working again. One of the drives failed. For a moment I am bypassing it connected to A.

In the middle of all of this my machine lost its home position in Y. How do I reset Y by GCode? I'd like it to touch switches to find absolute zero thereafter and probably reset it again I would think? Is there a routine? Looking in manual but haven't found it.

The Initialize macro does what you need. I suppose you could extract just the commands affecting the Y axis from that macro and do those steps, but just running that macro will do the job.

Thanks, turns out my limit switch died on one side. A new one arrives tomorrow. Anyone swapped one out? I am getting identical model so I assume I can mount in exact same physical location, wire it and press go? Or is there some other calibrating to do?

Got it all fixed, I am good to go! I did have to buy a new drive for my A but thats no big deal. I should be fully operational after that, right now all is good on the XY and Z for full operation!

If you just want to touch off the Y homing switches, type in G28Y
