    errrr, don't know where you see that key. Are you using the Web interface or Panel Due? On the web interface, in the Machine Control section, there are buttons clearly labelled (from top to bottom), Home All, Home X, Home Y and Home Z. I don't have a Panel Due so can't comment on how they might be labelled but what you describe with arrows pointing up and down sounds more like the baby stepping feature.



  • Ian the button he is referring to is the Autocal button for a delta and you only see if the Duet is configured as a delta and in that case you dont get the Homex/y/z buttons either.

  • No im configured as a coerxy
    And yes its on the pannel due. On the line where home all hone x ..home y..home..z and far left of screen is the auto cail botton

    Doug, - didn't know that - you guys with Delta's always have to complicate things :).

    Anyway, it seems our man is sorted.

  • Eh just pointing it out lol by the way can you let me know what that insulation material that you use under the bed is called It would be appreciated



  • Me ? Cardboard

    Thermopanel or some such name. It's main use is for underfloor heating.

    Is it that green fibrous stuff?

    I have used cork on my existing machine but was looking for any other alternative for the new one?

    Sort of but it's more rigid. It's a sort of fibres glass mesh sandwich with the green fibre stuff as the filling. I can't find the exact board that I bought but this one looks the same. http://www.theunderfloorheatingstore.com/insulation-boards/electric/prowarm-trade-backer-pro-tile-backer-board. I think when I researched it that the thermal conductivity was much lower than the equivalent thickness of cork. My bed frame is 400mm x 400mm made of 2020 extrusion and I just laid the board on it and put the aluminium tooling plate on top and drilled through the whole lot. Being semi rigid, the insulation doesn't need glueing or anything to prevent it from sagging.

    Apologies to the OP, we seem to have hijacked his thread.
