The basic job of an endstop is to detect when an axis has reached a minimum or maximum bound. A mechanical endstop is the simplest type of endstop: a simple mechanical switch positioned to trigger when a RepRap’s axis reaches the end/start of its motion. RepRap’s Cartesian printers and many other 3D printers all move the printer head (axis) relative to a start position. The endstop provides the firmware with an indication of where an origin point is located. The homing cycle of a printer uses the endstops to locate the origin of each axis.
