This Part is Great and works perfect!
It took me forever to figure out how to properly account for the x-axis limit switch offset on my Anet A8 with Cura 14.07
Their needs to be more information to show how to do this (online, not this part)
I work with cnc mills and 60 ton punch/plasma every day and this was still a pain in the a**.

If you only add in these two lines (the ones that everyone talks about in forums) it will move your start position every time you make a new part without power cycling the machine!!!

[cura start code that everyone suggests]
G0 X-9.0 ;mpaccount for new gantry (9 mm was specific to my situation)
G92 X0 Y0 Z15 ;mp
set this position as the new x/y zero

You must "re-Zero" the X and Y every time (G92) to avoid power cycling the anet A8 (see below)
The lines with "mp" in the comment are ones I have added

[cura start code that works well]
G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops
G92 X0 Y0 ;mp (this is the line mentioned above)
G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops
G1 Z15.0 F{travel_speed} ;move the platform down 15mm
G0 X-9.0 ;mp new gantry
G92 X0 Y0 Z15 ;mp
set this position as the new x/y zero
G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length

Hope this saves someone else from the massive headache it caused me.
