[* 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] The ''green box'' in the image shows BoXZY's positional coordinates along the X,Y and Z axis. TheThese numbers represent the millimeter distance in millimeters that your Attachment Mount is away from the designated X,Y or Z axis Origin. Every timeOrigins. When you connect to your BoXZY with the interface your BoXZY will assume the current position of the Attachment Mount is 0,0,0
[* icon_note] TheThere are four(4) limit switches are attached toon your BoXZY Attachment Mount and are used to indicate totwo(2) limit switches on your BoXZY thatframe. The X, Y and Z axis each have two(2) limit switches for the attachment cannot move any further in a specific directionMin and Max distances of travel along their axis. The Min distance is referred to as the Origin Limit Switches are the limit switches that denote BoXZYSwitch, it is positioned at distance of 0mm away fromalso referred to as the limit switch in a given"Home" for that specific axis
[* yellow] '''Let's Home BoXZYthe X axis'''. Select the ''move X axis to its origin limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''yellow arrow'' in the image
[* orange] '''Let's Home BoXZYthe Y axis'''. Select the ''move Y axis to its origin limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''orange arrow'' in the image
[* violet] '''Let's Home BoXZYthe Z axis'''. Select the ''move Z axis to its origin limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''purple arrow'' in the first image
[* icon_caution] The ''Movemove all axesaxis to their limit switch button'',switch'' or '''Home All''' button is indicated by the ''black arrow ''in the image, is a very dangerous buttonimage.
