Bl touch problems



  • so i figured out the issue my connectors near the bl touch came undone i need to heat shrink the connectors so that this does not happen before. at the moment it is running. as fare as actual offsets I have a general idea of what they or for this particular mount but i plan on printing a diffrent one out as well as design a blower attachment for the nactua quite fans i am using to replace the stock fans.
    if anyone has any suggestions an a good mounting system i would take suggestions. I am currently looking at the hero me mounts but not set on them.
    thank you for all the help.

    Just thinking is the BL TOUCH flashing red. mine does it now and then

    FYI, I use this in my homeall script. Read about it in one of the threads here. It resets the BlTouch error state. For example, if I turn the printer on with the bed close to the head such that the BlTouch mechanical self test fails.

    I'm trying to print the Hero Me Gen 2 right now and it's proving difficult.... Lots of supports and overhangs. Not exactly PETG friendly.

    There's also the bullseye if you want to use the stock 4010 blower. Or the Petsfang for 5015. The Bullseye was easier to print, but I wanted to use a 5015 blower, and the Petsfang is a bit too weird of a configuration for me.

    Glad you figured out the BLTouch. The wiring is almost always the problem it seems.

    I never thought of that. nice one Thanks



  • @lodger @zapta you may also look at setting up a macro for it. so that if you have the problem while tuning you can simply hit the macro instead of typing in the command



  • @phaedrux yes i was worried about the hero me for that reason the im looking at the v6 that is built around the micro Swiss hot end it seems a but better but not sure yet. as for fan issues ill be designing an adapter either way since i am not using an actual blower fan.



  • @kmhudgins Well the Hero Me printed successfully, but I managed to choose the wrong part to print. There are over a dozen to choose from. I printed the dual blower mount instead of the single blower mount. 🤦
