Tevo Little Monster + Duet Wifi issues



  • Recently upgraded to a duet wifi and im having issues with homing and a slight problem with auto calibration. I followed Design Prototype Tests youtube guide to get me up and and running. The printer is a tevo little monster with a genuine bltouch and everything else is stock.

    Problem #1. When i home i get the Error: G0/G1: target position not reachable from current position. It homes fine and from what i can tell nothing is wrong but it throws that error every time i home with either a G28 or the home all axis button. I read a post from HarveyS with a similar issue and his solution did not work for me.

    Problem #2. When i auto calibrate it seems to be skewed a little to the right and doesn't prob the top third of the bed (under the z motor)

    ; Use S-1 for measurements only, without calculations. Use S4 for endstop heights and Z-height only. Use S6 for full 6 factors
    ; If your Z probe has significantly different trigger heights depending on XY position, adjust the H parameters in the G30 commands accordingly. The value of each H parameter should be (trigger height at that XY position) - (trigger height at centre of bed)

    If i need to add anything or change anything please let me know. Also i am terrible with the technical software stuff so go easy on me : )



  • Please post also your "homedelta.g" file

    M665 R155 L397.19 B155 H525

    R is the HORIZONTAL distance from "pivot to pivot" between an effector joint and a carriage joint (when the effector is at X0Y0). Shown as Delta Radius below. Typical values for R are in the 170 area for TLMs. Having 155 in there will throw many things off. Way off.

    B is the printable radius of the bed. It will be slightly less than Printer Radius below, depending on how the bed is setup. 155 is a reasonable value for a TLM.

    L is Diagonal Rod Length in the diagram below. This should be labeled on the rods, or taken from previous firmware. I believe 397.19 is probably OK, but I have no way to verify. If you chose to re-measure this, be sure you measure "center to center".

    H is Height (aka max Z). It is OK to set this larger than the printer, and figure out what it really is during the first few calibration runs.

    Ignore Carriage Offset and Effector Offset in the diagram; some old firmware used them.

  • I believe that several problems are coming from R being so far off.



  • I have adjusted the R value. But my other problems persist

    If you're talking about problem #1, that you get "Error: G0/G1: target position not reachable from current position" in homedelta.g, it's probably the last G1 X0 Y0 move, which the printer may not be able to complete depending on the axis positions. Move down in Z before this move. So your homedelta.g would be:

  • @droftarts it would seem you've hit the nail on the head. I've tried your suggestion and it worked so thank you very much. Problem #1 is dead and gone.
