Z Probe Trigger Height G30 S-1 height changing every probe



  • @Veti Yes, It is a genuine BLTouch



  • @jrsphoto I tried making this adjustment, unfortunately I am still having the same issue

    It looks like the trigger height is decreasing with every probe. The most likely cause of this is that when the probe triggers and Z movement is stopped abruptly, the Z motors are unable to stop immediately. So they overshoot, leaving the print head lower than the firmware thinks it is.

    To test this theory, try reducing the probing speed, which is the F parameter in M558. You currently have F100, so try F50.

    Another possibility is that you have the Z acceleration too high or the motor current too low, so that when you command Z to move back up 5mm, steps are lost during the initial acceleration. To test this, try reducing the Z acceleration in the M201 command. You currently have Z120, so try Z60.



  • @dc42 said in Z Probe Trigger Height G30 S-1 height changing every probe:

    It looks like the trigger height is decreasing with every probe.

    Isn't the trigger height increasing with each probe? Newest is first, oldest last. That's what had me stumped.

  • @dc42 I tried both of these suggestions one at a time. I am still receiving the same result.

  • Thank you everyone that has given me input, I am very confused with this. I've been messing with the M558 Line. It now reads every 2 stop heights the same.

    Here is what I changed it to M558 P9 H6 F80 T6000 A10 S0.005 B1 R0.5

  • As a temporary measure I've backed up my config and reverted back to manual leveling. I have yet to successfully print since switching to the Duet board. Hopefully this gets me going.

    Let us know how you get on. I notice that you are currently losing about 0.0025mm every other probe attempt, which at the 400 microsteps/mm you are using is 1 microstep. This gives me an idea about what may be happening.

    @apex2011, how do you have the Z motors connected to the Duet?



  • I followed this document (Step 10) https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Guide/Ender+3+Pro+and+Duet+Maestro+Guide+Part+1:+Wiring/37

    Modified the plug so it would connect directly to the Duet without re-terminating.
