    Hello all,
    Since I am new the the world of CNC, I have a lot of questions that come to my mind.

    - Can a limit switch be used as homing switch. I dont understand the requirement for both. Unless you really require some drastic precision over the homing position.
    - if you see any major flaws in the design, please raise a flag.
    - I f someone have experience with the RNR controller using a digital jog handler, please help me i cannot configure my jog handler to work properly.

    "doing this mainly for the fun of building it more than using it"

    once it works...believe me, U want to use it (learn to use it) :)

    i'm also new, (using 3 limit switches)
    Yes you can use the limit switch as homing , but it depends on the software u use i think.

    Good luck :)

    Excellent your design, congratulations! Do you plan to share the entire project? (The shared Fusion file is just an image)

    Just updated the build log, also uploaded a video of my carriers not working very well ( issue with carriers.mp4), i feel the rails are problematic, because if I switch the carriers on the small rails, the seem to all work relatively OK. if someone have an idea on how to improve the smoothness of the carriers over the rails, please tell me what to do because as it is by now, i am really disappointed of those china made linear rails and i believe this is so bad, it can even prevent the build from being usable.
