You are correct!Define "Servo0 11" and then it works
-Keep your mind and try to test it. :)
-Everything will be fun!-Support all Getech printer.
-You can ask me the questions and I will kindly reply.

Hi! I have installed 3Dtouch and upload Marlin_1.1.8 12/30/2017 with arduino 1.8.5 (arduino 1.0.1 gives error) on my Geeetech I3 pro B
Power on the printer 3D touch make test with continuos flashing (error) .
Following reset procedure as in
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ix7lXvf ... rQ_ie4jVmC
I connected printer to repetier, I sent Gcode: M280 P0 S160, then with allen key size 2, I turned the screw anticlockwise until the LED turns off
after I turned the screw clockwise so the LED will light up. Removing the allen key the 3D touch start flashing again.
I tried several time the procedure but always the same result as soon as I remove the allen key from screw.
When I leave the allen key on screw the 3D touch work properly without flashing error , G28 and G29 work good and start printing
Maybe I'm making some mistake , have you any suggestion to not print with allen key on 3Dtouch sensor?
Thanks

Hello,

I am still very much a beginner when it comes to changing the firmware.
I followed the steps outlined in http://www.geeetech.com/Documents/3DTou ... Manual.pdf
but could not get the sensor to 'extend' when autohoming. It does the automatic test on start-up fine.

Could someone help me figure out the settings (I have a feeling it is Pin related) for my printer (Pro X, I believe) with the GT2560 Rev A board.
I changed the pins as suggested in the PDF(see below) but had no luck.

if MB(ULTIMAKER)
define KNOWN_BOARD
… #define Z_MAX_PIN -1//32
define Z_ENABLE_PIN 35

define SUICIDE_PIN 54 //PIN that has to be turned on right after start, to keep power flowing.
#define SERVO0_PIN 32//13 // untested

Any help would be very much appreciated,

JDave

Hi Wes,

I'm very much a newbie and have only made some basic firmware changes with Arduino, but I can't get your 1.1.8 version to compile and get lots of errors like the one given below. I know that this will be something simple (and obvious) but I would be really grateful if you could point mt in the right direction!

Regards,

Mark

Maybe you can check the board that you selected.

Hi,

I did try your firmware but I have problems with a temperature error.
I need 110° for the bed and 235° for the extruder.
When the bed is heating and is coming at 100° degrees I do get an error.

What can be wrong?

Kind regards,
Pascal

Hello all,

Can I ask to the OP to pretty please make this version of Marlin available on Github?

By doing so you/we can merge upstream changes at any time and you don't need to worry about merging your changes by hand and make upload the firmware.

Thank you in advance,

Thanks for this version of Marlin. I have adapted it for use with the i3 Pro W which I just couldn't get to work with 3DTouch and the original firmware. The thing would just ignore Z offsets. After 3 days of banging my head against a wall I decided to try and adapt your code.

Everything works fine now. Super happy.

Short question on the new Marlin releases:
I am runnung 1.0.2. No problems at the moment. I do not use BLTouch or similar. No need for bed leveling.

Is there any point in upgrading?
