[* black] Insert wisdom herered] Once you've validated that your endstops are working properly, click on the '''G-Code Console''' button in the left column. You will see the ''Console'' page shown in the first photo.
[* red] Now for the fun! Enter '''G28''' (without the single quotes and with a capital G and no spaces) in the ''Send G-Code... ''field and press '''Send''' or click the '''Return''' key.
[* icon_caution] Your printer should ''''home'''' - move the carriages '''UP''' until they hit the endstop switches and stop. ''Homing'' is the most common command you'll use. There is a Home All button on the '''Machine Control''' page that does the same thing but it's good to learn ''G28''.
[* icon_note] If your carriages move ++DOWN++ instead of up, you have connected your stepper motor wiring incorrectly. Go back and review ''Step 56''
