X axis homing issue
I'm having an issue with homing the x axis: when i hit home x axis the hot end moves to the right (even though the end stop is located to the left of it) and stops and says its homed without ever hitting the x axis endstop. I was wondering how I can fix this.
Here is the config

If the endstop is to the left, then your endstop setting is correct, and your homing move is correct, but if the motor is still moving the print head the wrong direction, then your motor direction of rotation is wrong.
M569 P0 S0
i changed that and now it goes to the left about 5mm and stops without touching the endstop
@drak said in X axis homing issue:
G1 H2 X5 F6000 ; go back a few mm
In that case remove the H2 from that move and try again. I think your endstops probably need to be inverted as it seems to think they are triggered when they are not.
Also please use M119 to get the status of the endstops. Send it once when the switch is depressed and again when it's not.
If it shows triggered when it shouldn't, you need to change the M574 to invert the pin by adding an ! mark before the pin name.
M574 X1 S1 P"!xstop" ; configure active-high endstop for low end on X via pin xstop M574 Y1 S1 P"!ystop" ; configure active-high endstop for low end on Y via pin ystop
And if that was the case then the motor direction may need to go back to normal as well.
@phaedrux I reset the direction and inverted the x axis and now it homes in the right direction. However when it its the endstop it doesn't stop it just keep hitting it without triggering it.
@Phaedrux i got it working, it ended up being a wiring issue. thanks for the help
