Me Creator 2: Home- and Origin-Point

Post by hotten64 » Sun Jul 30, 2017 2:31 am

Hello,

I am a newbie to 3D-printing and have bought a Me Creator 2. I have a question about before I started printing with SD-Card.

The user manual tells me:
“Home position is in the right back corner of the printing platform.“
This is the same point I get with “Auto Home“ in Me creator 2 “Prepare“ menu.

With Repetier-Host: "Note: the origin point is the left front corner of the platform when printing. So when the printer is at home position, the coordinates of X/Y axis are: X=160mm, Y=160mm, Z=0mm."

Now my questions:
- Must I before every printing calibrate with Repetier-Host the origin point at the left front corner manually, no matter I use USB or SD-Card?

- Can I save this settings anyway to Repetier-Host?

- Is there a way to automate this with modified g-code and Me Creator 2 get the movement to origin point from g-code without “homing“ in Repetier-Host manually?

With regards

It is ok ,you need not calibrate the origin point to the right back corner ,because the printer will do it automatically before starting printing.

Have you enabled 3D touch functionality in the firmware?

You can download the firmware from this link: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=17046
Try to edit the code:

Code: Select all

// Travel limits after homing
#define X_MAX_POS 175
#define X_MIN_POS 0
#define Y_MAX_POS 165
#define Y_MIN_POS 0
#define Z_MAX_POS 161
#define Z_MIN_POS 0
to:

Code: Select all

// Travel limits after homing
#define X_MAX_POS 160
#define X_MIN_POS 0
#define Y_MAX_POS 160
#define Y_MIN_POS 0
#define Z_MAX_POS 160
#define Z_MIN_POS 0
Then re-burn the firmware, hope it will be work.
