Ok so I have the machine up and running, flashed the board for the dual endstops and send the m119 code and it shows the endstops as open. When I press home on Repetier, the only thing that moves is Z in the + (up) axis.
you need to wire the limit switches as normaly closed. the 2 outside pins. and z min is open.
I have the 2 outside pins connected, but they are normally open as recommended from the site.
For the safest configuration the endstops should be wired in the Normally Closed position (NC), to prevent wire disconnects from damaging the machine during the homing sequence.I don't have any endstop for the z. Are you saying to just put the pins on the RAMBo board even though not connected to anything?
No, don't hit the home button. Use the home x and home y buttons only. Z will always be a moving target because the work piece will always be a different thickness. They should be normally closed. If you found something saying open let us know so it can be fixed. The z endstop will be a touch plate.
It should work without a touch plate though correct? I don’t have one yet.
When pressing either of those, the Z axis still goes up and nothing happens on the X or Y axis. I have to press emergency stop to get the Z to stop
Did you rewire the end stops?
I tried to print the crown and same thing happens. Z axis just continues to move upwards.
I have them wired as originally wired following the V1 instructions on the website. NC position.

It looks like you might be running the default Marlin build instead of Ryan’s version…
