[* icon_reminder] You can control the size of increments in which the X and Y axis move by clicking on a specific region of the button. This can be seen in the ''second image''. It shows the same button side by side, each with a different size increment selected. The smaller the region of the button you select the smaller the movement
[* icon_note] Moving the X or Y a positive direction will move the X or Y axis ''away from'' the Home limit switch and negative direction will move the axis ''toward'' their Home limit switches
[* icon_caution] Remember, these numbers are in millimeters and if you double tap the increment you will move that distance twice with almost no pause in between each move. Be careful when using the manual control buttons
[* black] The control buttons for moving the Z''' axis '''will look like the buttons you see in the ''third image'', they will be located to the right of the X and Y control buttonsbuttons. Click the positive button and watch it move
[* black] Moving the Z in a positive direction this will lowerincrease the distance between the platform and the Attachment Mount by moving the platform towards the bottom of your BoXZY
[* icon_note] The build area is 165mm x 165mm x 165mm. There are limit switches that prevent the Attachment Mount from trying to move past the physical limit in any direction. When BoXZY contacts these Max limit switches it will stop that axis from moving any further, but it will continue to execute all other commandscommands.
