[title] Moving BoXZY with Manual Controls: Part 1
[* red] The red box in the image shows you the control buttons for the X, Y, and Z axes. On the left halfside of the red box, you'll seebox in the image, there's a circle with a number in it (we'll explain this in Step 4) and triangles pointingthat point up, down, left, and right. InThese buttons manually control the center of the circle, you’ll see a number. We’ll explain what this means in a few steps.

X and Y axes.

red] The control buttons for movingthat move the X axis are the triangles that point left and right. Hover over one of these triangles. When a positive number appears in the center of the circle, click on the triangle and the X will move.

red] The control buttons for movingthat move the Y axis are the triangles that point up and down. Hover over one of these triangles. When a positive number appears in the center of the circle, click on the triangle and the Y will move.
[* red] On the right side of the red box, there's a circle with "Z" in the center and triangles that point up and down. These buttons control the Z axis. Click the positive button and watch the Z move.
[* icon_note] BoXZY's build area is 165mm x 165mm x 165mm. There are limit switches that prevent the Attachment Mount from trying to move past the 165mm physical limit in any direction. When BoXZY contacts these limit switches it will stop that axis from moving any further, but it will continue to execute all other commands.

When BoXZY contacts these limit switches it will stop that axis from moving any further, but it will continue to execute all other commands.
[* icon_note] Moving the X or Y a positive direction will move the X or Y axis ''away from'' the home limit switch. Moving the X or Y in a negative direction will move the axis ''toward'' the home limit switch.
[* red] On the right half of the red box in the image, to the right of the X and Y control buttons, you'll see the Z axis control buttons. Click the positive button and watch the Z move.
[* icon_note] Moving the Z in a positive direction will increase the distance between the build plate and the Attachment Mount by moving the build plate towards the bottom of your BoXZY.
