ender 5 plus help



  • I have swapped in the duet 2 wifi but having a little trouble getting the printer to operate correctly.

    1. the filament sensor isn't working at all I have it plugged into E0 stop and inserted
      ; Filament runout sensor
      M581 E1 T1 S0 C1 ; Filament run-out sensor triggers a pause
      into the config.g file have had no luck. I am using the original sensor that came with the printer

    2. when I am trying to get the trigger height for the BLtouch it doesn't display in the G-Code console and everytime I make adjustments it just simply adds to the z position. The BLtouch is setup as the z endstop but unsure if its also the bed leveler.

    Any help is appreciated.

    @nightmare90gt ideally, post your full config.g and response to M115. Also post you homeall.g and homez.g.

    1. Use M591 for filament sensor, not M581; see https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Gcode#Section_M591_Configure_filament_sensing and https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Connecting_and_configuring_filament-out_sensors

    2. Not sure how you are currently setting Z trigger height, but this is the way to do it: https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Test_and_calibrate_the_Z_probe#Section_Calibrate_the_Z_probe_trigger_height

    Have you followed this?

    https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Test_and_calibrate_the_Z_probe#Section_Calibrate_the_Z_probe_trigger_height

    3mm trigger height seems a bit too high for the BLTouch. When mounted the base of the probe should be ~8mm above the nozzle tip, which will lead to a trigger height of ~2mm. This is important to get right because you don't want to pin to be too low during a print and get caught, and you don't want the nozzle tip to be below the probe pin when probing as you'll get a head crash.

    M350 X32 Y32 Z32 E64 I1 ; Configure microstepping with interpolation

    your config says duet wifi, but interpolation like this only works on the maestro or duet3



  • @Veti would I just take the i1 out of the code.

    It would be better to use x16 microstepping with interpolation enabled. Your motors will be quieter and smoother.

    X64 on the extruder is ok since it gets you up to 400 ish steps per mm, which is good.

    M350 X16 Y16 Z16 E64 I1

    And don't forget to adjust your steps per mm for the X Y Z axis as well.



  • The 591 didnt work for the filament sensor the extruder will still move with no filament.

    I will change the microstepping to 16 later today.

    Please post the M591 command you are using. Note that filament sensing is only active when printing from SD card. You can see the status by sending M591 D[extruder_drive_number], and it should say if filament is present or not.

    Sent M591 D3 got nothing.

    @nightmare90gt Please read the M591 documentation I posted in reply to your first post: https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Gcode#Section_M591_Configure_filament_sensing

    Your M591 command is wrong. You need D, P, C and S parameters in M591, where D is the extruder drive, P is the sensor type, C is the endstop pin, and S is enable.
