Re: G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

Hi Rick, Thanks for the reply. I have replied to your PM directly. The photo I attached to my earlier post did not come through for some reason. As I said in my earlier post, the video was taken before I switched around the spider. My probe is definitiely located on the right hand side (ignore its p...

Re: G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

HI Mark and Rick, Thank you for your input. I did have the spider the wrong way round initially, but Eric (from Geeetech who sometimes posts on this forum) pointed out my error. I have subsequently reassembled the spider as shown in the attached image. The probe is on the right, the X to the left, Z...

Re: G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

Thanks Mark, I have already replaced the lock ring with a brass one as the plastic one I was supplied with by Geeetech would not work (did not tighten). I have checked that the probe moves freely and also sprayed silicon oil through the hole for lubrication. I still have the G29 auto-levelling probl...

Re: Delta mini G2S firmware

Try changing these parameters in the firmware and re-upload the sketch: #define INVERT_X_DIR true // for Mendel set to false, for Orca set to true #define INVERT_Y_DIR true // for Mendel set to true, for Orca set to false #define INVERT_Z_DIR true // for Mendel set to false, for Orca set to true You...

Re: G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

I am not sure, but this looks like what I seem to be experiencing, namely that the G29 set of probing data seems to be creating a correction for points that are in error. My limited delve into the Geeetech Marlin firmware code shows me that the firmware uses a different method for calculating positi...

Re: G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

Hi Rickr, The M119 command will not cause the printer itself to do anything. Rather, it should output the status of the endstops in your terminal window in Repetier's serial console. I had a similar issue with my printer initially and it was because the motor travel direction was incorrect. See this...

Re: G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

Hi Rickr, I found that the configuration file needed to be changed to account for the way the stops were set up. This might be a case of the blind leading the blind, but test something for me please. I assume that HOME ends up with the carriages at the top of your frame (not heading to the bed). Let...

Re: G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

Hi Mark, Yes, these things are all measured and defined. I attach my configuration file. Here is the output from the various M119 tests and the G29: M119 when homed (probe down): 12:29:42.597 : Reporting endstop status 12:29:42.597 : x_max: TRIGGERED 12:29:42.597 : y_max: TRIGGERED 12:29:42.597 : z_...

Re: G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

Hello Mark, Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, all endstops are working well. I have confirmed their statuses using the M119 command. I have also done this separately while homed and elsewhere to check that these statuses change. I have also done the M119 and checked the status changes when the pro...

G29 autolevelling destruction G2S

Hi All, Anyone got any advice concerning autolevelling using the G29 command? When I issue the G29 command, it does a series of probe points that show a variance of up to 3mm in the Z axis. Directly AFTER developing the autolevelling probing matrix, the head tries to move up and outside of the print...
