SOLVED Z homing issues

  • I have a CoreXY with a 5v npn probe. The probe triggers when metal is present but it doesn't stop moving. Also in the config tool, it asks about trigger value. Is that volts ohms milliamps? Please help.

  • post the config.

    for trigger value the default should be ok, as npn is normally either 0 or 1000.

  • @tham40 said in Z homing issues:

    M208 X0 Y0 Z0 S1 ; set axis minima

    there is no probe configuration in your config.

    you need something like this

    M574 Z1 S2 ; set endstops controlled by probe

    ; Z-Probe
    M558 P5 H5 F120 T6000 ; set Z probe type to switch and the dive height + speeds
    G31 P500 X0 Y0 Z2.5 ; set Z probe trigger value, offset and trigger height

    and the corresponding homing files like for example
    G91 ; relative positioning
    G1 H2 Z5 F6000 ; lift Z relative to current position
    G1 H1 X-235 Y-215 F1800 ; move quickly to X and Y axis endstops and stop there (first pass)
    G1 H2 X5 Y5 F6000 ; go back a few mm
    G1 H1 X-235 Y-215 F360 ; move slowly to X and Y axis endstops once more (second pass)
    G90 ; absolute positioning
    G1 H2 X15 Y15 F6000 ; go to first bed probe point and home Z
    G30 ; home Z by probing the bed

  • Now I'm getting an error of Z probe already triggered at start of probing move

  • Add I1 parameter to M558 command, but better start with reading these: and

  • I had read those a couple times . Adding the I1 worked. Thanks guys.
