G32 G30 Auto Calibration Issues

  • Hello,

    I'm in the midst of converting an Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus to Duet electronics and Haydn's magball arms. I am having difficulty with getting the auto-calibration to work properly, and I'm sure it's a very simple thing I have overlooked, but I've been stuck for a few days.

    Running G28 followed by G30 produces results as expected. Tap the nozzle, probing stops.

    When running G32, the effector descends, will not respond to Z-probe trigger, and crashes into the bed. Occasionally, when running calibration with a test height of M665 H100 instead of the H240 approximation I have below from my initial build and measurements, the effector will descend ~100mm, perform a Z probe going down 20mm dive height as specified in M558, not make contact with the bed, and fail the calibration due to no measurements.

    I think I've included relevant information below. Let me know if there's any other information you need or if you have questions. Thanks! 🙂

    TLDR, how do I stop my G32 from ignoring my z probe output and crashing into the bed?

    Note that I was running an older version of the firmware when first encountering this problem, but updating to the newest release did not solve my issue either

  • @whil said in G32 G30 Auto Calibration Issues:


    Running G30 should give you the height to put into M665.

    Change your bed.g to run 6 factor calibration. (the default recommended one -> S6).

    Normally there is no G28 in the Bed.g file

  • I think both of us might be confused here. Correct me if I'm wrong, but when G30 is called during auto calibration, triggering the Z probe should stop the effector. Correct? Currently, this is not the case with my setup.

  • home the printer
    run M119
    report the output.

    move the head down to where it should trigger.
    then run M119 again
    report the output.
