I just received my new Creality Ender 3. I was going through and checking/adjusting everything for alignment, and I noticed that when you "auto home" the print head, the nozzle stops off the front of the print bed by 5-10mm.

Is that normal?

Is it perhaps by design to allow purging the nozzle without dumping on the bed?

It doesn't appear that there is any way to adjust the Y stop switch without making modifications to it. It also didn't look like there was any easy way to move the bed either.

Yes, this is the "intended" behavior, as the home in relation to the physical limit position is not placed correctly about 7.5mm into the bed in both X and Y.

to correct this, please look at the Recalibrating Home-position for the Ender3
