Kossel XL with duetWifi - Problem after Problem

  • Hi guys I am new to 3d printing and I have purchased a Kossel XL from: http://builda3dprinter.eu/3d-printer-kits/kossel-xl/

    Now I have been using the ramps 1.4 for 3-4 months now and I have had to replace stepper motors, stepper modules and even the ramps board itself a few times now.
    When I ordered the printer I also order the Duetwifi and just never bothered with it.

    With a stepper module blowing and also killing my extruder motor at the same time I decided I would use the DuetWifi and hopefully get more reliability.

    Ok so now on to the issues I'm having. So I managed to get the the printer to home once and started checking the movements making sure everything is working before I start fine tuning and learning how to calibrate it.

    I'm using the web interface as I haven't ordered a DuePanel yet as I'm undecided on the size I want.

    The issue I'm having is that when I try home the printer Z and Y carriage home perfectly but X only moves a little bit and doesn't home. Unless I click the home button until it reaches the endstop.

    The endstops work fine and when manually clicked they are triggered with the m119 command.

    I don't want to use a probe so I have disabled the z probe.

    Here is a copy of my Config File:

    ;******* Change 320 in the following to a higher value if your Kossel has taller towers

    G1 S2 X3 Y3 Z3			; move all carriages down 3mm

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    and thanks In advance for any help offered.

  • Try this in HomeDelta.g
    G1 S1 x700 Y700 Z700 F2500 - Change the x to X
    G1 S2 X3 Y3 Z3 - Change 3 to -3

  • I feel like such an Idiot thank you so much Jackal.

  • I am glad to be of help
