2 endstops on one axis
If I want to have two endstops on a single axis where only one of the endstops has to be triggered, how would I wire in a second endstop for the one axis to a duet wifi. Would I have to repurpose the expansion board pins?
you would wire them in parallel with NO endstops.
can i ask why you want to do that?
Yea I am building a machine with a fixed bed and the Y axis has 2 sides. Since its being run with 4 motors wired in parallel to a single driver I want it to stop when either side reaches its max so that it doesn't damage itself if the other side is slightly off.

this has the potential to go out of sync once the drivers are not powered.
rrf3 has the ability to align axis using multible endstops. but it requires more than one motor.
@Veti So I've been thinking and I don't need a second extruder motor driver, so if I was able to wire 2 motors to the Y terminal and the other 2 to the E1 motor driver, How would I redefine the E1 driver and respective endstop in the Config. And from there how would I enable rrf3 to align the two sides?
Thanks for your help.
the motor config would be
M584 X0 Y1:4 Z2 E3
for the endstop config see
so something like
M574 Y2 S1 P"ystop+e1stop"
