Pausing in position G-Code

I'm trying to write G-code for my A30 to Home, move to directly over the 1st bed level adjuster come down and pause so I can adjust it then go on to the next one and so on. I can do everything except pause in position. Does anyone have a command that will work? I've also as a work around tried to sl...

Re: manual levelling positions

I don't have a problem with levelling I just want to make it easier by setting the height at the adjusting screws.

Re: manual levelling positions

I'm trying to simplify things I don't want to have to connect anything else to it just to level it better, I just want it to run as another print. Simple or so it sounded when when i first thought of it. thanks

manual levelling positions

First is it possible to change where the standard manual levelling positions are (A30). I'd like to get them directly above the adjusting screws. If this is not possible how can I get the gcode to goto x45 y45 z.1 and pause there and then x285, y45, z.1 and pause there and so on? I've tried editing ...

Re: A30 SDCard issue - print pauses randomly

I used to get the same problem when I used an extension cable so that could plug it in at the front of the box. I went back to the standard card it worked fine. I have since got a different extension cable and that works fine. So i would think either the card is dirty or not seating correctly. Try a...

Re: Problems with leveling / General questions

My A30 used to go out of level and need re-leveling frequently, I haven't had to do it for over a month since I found the cause. People kept telling me it was skipped or missed stepper motor steps But often it would change whilst I didn't use it. Mine would end up 2mm out with the frame after a few ...

Re: Back of bed being ignored???

Mine did too, I first noticed the right side. If I try to push it it wouldn't go all the way to the edge because the wheel nut hit the frame. I turned it around so the nut is on the front and the bolt head easily misses the frame. That still isn't a fix though as the firmware won't allow it to come ...

printing to the edge

I noticed that my prints would end 15mm or so before the far edges of the bed. Moving the carriage across (+X) I realised that the nut and end of bolt would foul the Z carriage plate if it went much further. So I took out the right most wheel bolt and turned it around. Now I could push it to the ver...

Re: Installing Smartto

Thanks, I borrowed a mates win 10 laptop and it worked. I had to set x motor travel 335 and y to 340 to get it to move to the far edges of the bed. :D

Installing Smartto

High I have an A30 and want to change some of the parameters so I downloaded smartto motor 1.2 for windows zip file. I'm using an old XP laptop, I ran the file and changed my path. I plugged the printer cable in and updated the drivers. I double click main.exe and it appears to run in a dos window b...
