Re: 3D touch

Hi William, thanks for your reply I have tried what is shown in the video with no luck. Can I take it that the firmware you posted for my printer is correct and its a hardware issue or is it possible its a firmware problem relating to my board. Am I correct that the GT2560A plus board is the one wit...

Re: 3D touch

I think my board is a GT2560A not the GT2560A PLUS does this affect the firmware required for the 3D touch that I have been trying to use ?

Re: 3D touch

Hi William
The 3D Touch does self test on power up so I would have thought the magnet was ok but I will give it a try.
Is there anyway I can see if the board is communicating with the probe or check the status of the pins on the board using Repetier Host or Pronterface ?

Re: 3D touch

Hi William, thanks for the info But it does not show the GT box board. I was hoping that I could Connect the 2 wire plug to Z min socket as per 3D Touch instructions and then split the 3 wire connector so that 2 wires connect to the Z max 2 pin socket and the 3rd wire to a pin on the E1 motor socket...

3D touch

Hi, I’m in process of installing a 3D Touch to my Geeetech Aluminium Pro A and wondering if it’s necessary to go to the main GT2560 board. Having dismantled the 3 in 1 box found all pins are wired out to the sub board GT box on the printer. So if I wire the 3D Touch to the sub board with the 2 pin c...

Re: Bl Touch firmware

Hi William, It appears a BL touch can be used I found this on the forum http://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=62499#p91203 So I will try the method he describes.
