3D Touch Sensor:Auto-levelling for Geeetech 3D printer

Post by William » Wed Sep 21, 2016 3:53 pm

Hi, there
Tired of leveling your heat bed manually?
Would you like to add an auto-leveling system for your printer?
For me, the answer must be "YES".
Now,here comes our protagonist:3D Touch Sensor

Her chief features are:
Simple,Smart,High-precision,Innovative Solenoid: Ultra Power Saving,Technologies,wide Selection of Bed,Optimized structure: Larger Build Size
I've already add it on my printer,it is so charming and has a perfect performance on it.Here is a video about it:

More importantly,everyone(a newbie or experienced guy) has a easy access to the Auto-levelling world,cuz there are detailed guides(including software and hardware) in the manual.

I modified the firmware for they two,you guys can have a reference:

New GT2560 A+ board

So far,we've updated the manuals on I3 ProB and I3 X(the sensor only supports GT2560 board so far),i'll post it here once there is an updating on other models.
Do you guys wanna have a try?

I am sorry to say, but i think my sensor i broken. It only flash red light, but it dont push pin up or down.
I updated my marlin firmware with the help of the instructions from this site http://www.geeetech.com/blog/tag/3dtouc ... ng-sensor/

i use manual codes ( M280 P0 S10 ; pushes the pin down )

But no reaction another than blinking red light?

What should i do?

Before printing all axis is going to home and that is a problem for z axis because it has no limit switch and because the sensor is using that terminal.
It does not perform auto leveling, . This must be a software thing, but i followed the manual for GT2560.

What can i do?

Ps. Sorry my bad english, i am Norwegian

You can show me more details about the issue,or you can attach a video from Youtube.
PS.There is no need to use a Z limit switch with 3D-Touch(3D-Touch detects 5 points on the bed.).

Hi to everybody,

yesterday, I mounted this sensor , on my I3 Pro B but, but all work bad.
I did the modifications on Firmware Marlin, in Configuration.h and pins.h, like in the instructions.
I saw the wiki , where is an explanation of calibration : http://www.geeetech.com/wiki/index.php/ ... ing_Sensor

After that , every time the printer start , does the controls and when it started to print, the nozzle is , at least, 1mm from the bed.

Thanks in advance
Bye
Marco

@Marco
So you mean the Sensor works fine during the calibration but the nozzle is not in the right position when printing?
If you do,decrease the value "-1.4" in the following codes:

Code: Select all

#define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -1.4
You can decrease it to "-1.9" first to see if it makes a difference.
