Duet 3 3 z motors config
I am trying to set up a core xy with 3 z motors. And I think I have sent myself insane trying to set it up. Not much point posting my config files as I have edited it so many times, I go cross eyed trying to figure out what I have done. But nothing has worked so far.
So if any of you kind people could share your config etc files, so I could compare to what I have, I would really appreciate it.
@mattbaker Are you using a Duet 3 6HC with 3HC expansion board? What seems to be the problem?

I am trying to set up a core xy with 3 z motors.
normally you do not need to do more than add the extra motors to the M584 line like
M584 X0 Y1 Z2:4:5 E3
current acceleration etc. is the same for all z motors
see this article for more information and extra stuff
@mattbaker One of the gotchas on Duet 3 wiring is that the motor driver layout:
Make sure the motors are plugged into the right headers!
Ive wired the steppers correctly, found that one out the hard way.
I'm trying to get the 3 axis levelling working.
@droftarts I'm trying to get the 3. axis levelling working. I'm using the Duet 3 6HC. without the expansion board at present.
- to know which motor driver links to which leadscrew, eg Z2 is front left, Z3 is back centre, Z4 is front right
- Leadscrew position defined by M671, in the order the leadscrews are defined by M584!
- Change bed.g to probe as near as possible to each leadscrew
Ive gone back through it and changed the config however I keep getting g30: some computed corrections exceed limit of 5.00.
Ive tried changing the limit, you see in some videos distances of 20+ mm, and it just seems to get ignored.
M671 X480:230.0:-30 s100 Y460.0:-40:460 S100

@mattbaker your m671 doesn’t look right.
Here’s mine. For reference the order of the z axis motors are one on the left is motor one, motor on the back right is two, motor on the front right is the third. All commands are listed/referenced with that order. I also always include a pin map in the beginning of my config.g as an easy reference.

@Nuramori Thanks for your help. I uploaded new files from the configurator, changed a few things, which I thought is what I had, and problem solved.
No idea what the problem was, looks the same to me, but I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth.
