Using absolute coordinates it works fine. Try to use anything else and it won’t work.

Try putting a $X as the first line.

Ok, so how do I do that? I assume I just don’t type it into the console. Sorry, I’m still pretty new.

To assume is to err. Yes type it in the console. It’s a soft reset, I believe. Been a while for grbl :slight_smile:

I put mine as the first line in my “Use CNC” and “Use Laser” macros.
