[title] Manually Controlling BoXZY
[* red] In your ''Manual Control ''tab you will see a status header that says '''Idle''', this means there is no Gcode being sent to your machine. The header will read '''Printing Job ETA <time>''' when you are 3D printing or Milling
[* blue] Below the status header you will see an '''input line''' that reads '''G-Code''' with a button that reads '''Send'''. This input line will allow you to manually enter Gcode to move your BoXZY
[* green] Shown by the green boxThe ''green box'' in the first image, you will see aimage shows BoXZY's positional read out ofcoordinates along the X, YX,Y and Z axis. The numbers represent the millimeter distance your Attachment Mount is away from the designated X,Y or Z axis ofOrigin. Every time you connect to your BoXZY with the interface your BoXZY will assume the current position of the Attachment Mount is 0,0,0
[* green] These positional read outsicon_note] The limit switches are expressed in millimetersattached to your BoXZY Attachment Mount and represent the distance each axis is positioned relativeare used to indicate to BoXZY that the ''Zero'' position set forattachment cannot move any further in a specific direction. The Origin Limit Switches are the limit switches that axis. Usingdenote BoXZY outis positioned at distance of 0mm away from the box, this Zero position will be the ''origin limit switches''switch in a given axis
[* yellow] '''Let's moveHome BoXZY'''. Select the ''X movemove X axis to limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''yellow arrow'' in the image
[* orange] '''Let's moveHome BoXZY'''. Select the ''Y movemove Y axis to limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''orange arrow'' in the image
[* violet] '''Let's moveHome BoXZY'''. Select the ''Z movemove Z axis to limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''purple arrow'' in the first image
[* green] Shown by the green boxThe ''green box'' in the first image, you will see aimage shows BoXZY's positional read out ofcoordinates along the X, YX,Y and Z axis.

[* yellow] '''Let's moveHome BoXZY'''. Select the ''X movemove X axis to limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''yellow arrow'' in the image

[* violet] '''Let's moveHome BoXZY'''. Select the ''Z movemove Z axis to limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''purple arrow'' in the first image
[* icon_caution] The ''Move all axes to their limit switch button'', indicated by the ''black arrow ''in the image, is a very dangerous button. This will move each X, Y and Z axis at the same time towards their limit switches. Only use this button when prefaced in a guide or when there are no objects inside of your BoXZY and no attachment in the attachment mount
