[title] Manually Controlling BoXZY
[* red] In your ''Manual Control ''tab you will see a status header that says '''Idle''', this means there is are no Gcodecommands being sent to your machine. The header will read '''Printing Job ETA <time>''' when you are 3D printing or Milling and commands are being sent and/or executed by BoXZY
[* 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 Gcodecodes to move your BoXZYBoXZY. There will be more on this in following steps
[* green] The ''green box'' in the image shows BoXZY's positional coordinates along the X,Y and Z axis. These numbers represent the distancecurrent position in millimeters that your Attachment Mount is awaymm from the designated X,Y or Z axis Origins. When you connect to your BoXZY with the interface your BoXZY will assume the currenthome position of the Attachment Mount is 0,0,0
[* icon_note] There are four(4) limit switches on yourYou will need to "Home" BoXZY Attachment Mount and two(2) limit switches on your BoXZY frame. The X, Y and Z axis each time you re-connect or power down the machine so these numbers are accurate. You should never have two(2) limit switches for the Min and Max distances of travel along their axis. The Min distance is referred to as the Origin Limit Switch, it is also referred to as the "Home" for that specific axisan attachment installed when you do this
[* yellow] '''Let's Home the X axis'''. Select the ''movehome icon with an X'' to move the X axis to its originminimum limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''yellow arrow'' in the image
[* orange] '''Let's Home the Y axis'''. Select the ''movehome icon with a Y'' to move the Y axis to its originminimum limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''orange arrow'' in the image
[* violet] '''Let's Home the Z axis'''. Select the ''movehome icon with a Z'' to move the Z axis to its originminimum limit switch button'', as indicated by the ''purple arrow'' in the image
[* icon_caution] The ''move all axis to their limit switch'' or '''Home All''' button is indicated by the ''black arrow ''in the image. This will move each X, Y and Z axis towards their origin limit switches. Only use this button when there are no objects inside of your BoXZY and no attachment in the attachment mount. Beginners should not use this button
