Squaring is easy since 2.8, no need to move switches or adjust screws or....

I'm not sure how changing the offsets in the .ini file to affect squaring, instead of adjusting the sensors never occurred to me.

Brilliant!

That's what the offsets are for. Get the gantry as near as you can then adjust it with HOME OFFSET

But don't use a big number

Just never occurred to me that they could be different values for a synchronized axis.  I like.  

Mine's adjusted the old fashioned way, but from here any adjustments that should ever need to be made, you betcha... :)

Got some more electronics parts delivered today and about 10 days ago, so now full steam ahead mounting and wiring the control boxes for the remaining two machines. As my $hitty luck would have it, went to get the boxes and there were none, so did some quick mock-ups in FreeCAD that came to about 2KG of plastic filament for one box and 3 days of printing, did not like that mainly as the cost would come to over 80 Euro a box, so went to get some other stuff and was told that some boxes just came in ! Oh boy, what a joy, that did not last, as the only usable boxes were 25x35CM and the lids do not have that nice pattern on them, just plain boring ... nothing. Still better than 3D printed option.
Now cramming 4 drives, 12 relays, 3 power supplies, 2 voltage regulators, and a Mesa 7i92 inside is fun, wiring all that stuff is not so fun.

And these are some parts i printed a while back for the Z axis covers, many colors, as even finding the same color filament has become impossible.
Still, fun ! :)

that's an odd size over on this side of the pond but a sheet of 14 Gauge 5ft x 10ft is $430.00 plus freight which probably cost close to the cost of a sheet with the cost of fuel the way it is now. the more you buy the better the price you get but unless you have deep pockets it's hard to get the best price and best freight cost so you get the most bang for your buck.

after converting that's about 400 Euro for one full sheet 5ft x 10ft

USA has crazy prices there. our size is 2400 x 1200 (8' x 4'). The last sheet of 2mm I bought was about AUD $120 so similar to Tommy's Roughly 72 euro
