@engikeneer Thankyou for your time the Z axis is now solved.
Thanks for explaining it, I can see where I went wrong. Now I can start to fine tune.
@engikeneer Thanks for the help.
Here is my Homeall.g. My Z endstop is at the top. Ender 5 homing position is back right top. Should the origin be changed to reflect this? I searched the web but there isn't much on an ender 5 with RepRap.

changed motor direction and back again as this is correct. Here is a copy of my home and endstop code. Homing does appear to be fine? And from 14 onwards the start of the print code.

I allowed it to run on and can now say that either the slicer or the firmware thinks that the Z axis 0 is in the middle of the Z carriage. The Z axis lowered to the middle and the print began? Also the Z axis homes as it should at the top.
I've been away from 3d printing for a few years. I am now back but I'm having to update myself on the many changes. I have an Ender 5 with a Duet 2 Wifi and a Titan Aero extruder.
After many days I have got to a point where I am trying to print a calibration cube, so I can fine tune. However when ever it starts the Z axis is getting told to start at the bottom (0.3) instead of at the top (299.7). I know I am missing something as I shouldn't and wouldn't go through the entire print code and change the Z axis co-ordinates.
Here is my config:config.g
I'm sure someone knows where I'm going wrong.
@phaedrux Thanks for the swift reply phaedrux. I'm glad to say that the action of copying my heater config into chat made me realise the figures were wrong, so I popped into config and changed them. It appears to be working fine now, I'm just running a M307.
I am grateful for the help. It's good to know that there is a place for advice, I'm currently suffering from a psychological disorder that makes it hard for me to concentrate for large periods of time and also makes it difficult to problem solve.
So your help is appreciated.
I followed the guide, thanks. However when I tried a test print, small overhang scale, it immediately started to print in the homing corner and didn't extrude anything. Am I right in thinking that this is possibly to do with the cura settings? As the machine now homes perfectly.
