Nozzle probes off bed.
@Turbo bed is 220 220 250 , you can go as high as 235 ish on both x and y.
@Turbo The bed pick is perfect if you flip it so the offset volume is on the left when facing it.

@Turbo OK my bad, setup calls for a - 48 (which going through the many configurations of petsfang I found this -->>Right BLT...............................X....+48................Y.....-2) which should be positive 48. So by switching the - to a + the machine works with my setup now, just the points are not in a clockwise rotation. (For note I did switch the - to + but I posted here, but at that point I had other issues causing the problems.) SOOOOoooo this is my new offset xy bltouch bedmesh
225-48=177-2(-2 for bedstartpoint)=175/5 =x35
227-2=225-15(-15 for bedstartpoint)=210/5 =y42
G31 P25 X+48 Y-2
M557 X2:177 Y15:227 S35:42
This will give me a 5x5 which I need to map out in a ccw pattern. What changes do I need to make to my bed.g file? I found this on the forum
""1. A sequence of 3, 4 or 5 G30 commands with coordinates. This is the old way of doing it. You are limited to just 5 points, and you can specify trigger height corrections for those points.
- A G29 command to do mesh leveling. You don't get to choose individual points (just the grid) and you can't specify trigger height corrections. But you can have a lot more points.""
If I'm running 25 point check I need to delete out the old G30 command lines and replace it with a G29?
@Turbo ALL FIXED got it working so I'm all good! I'm using G29 in the bed.g and got the first bed mesh mapped out. Currently my resin printer is making a mount to go on the left side. This will allow me to probe more of the bed :). I learned quite a bit since I botched this probe offset, with the new knowledge I plan on make the best bed mesh I can. Again thanks for all the help everyone, and Turbo you did a lot here so I'm going to name my Printer "Turbo" (Hopefully no more issues from here!)

Glad you got it! Its really weird at first, but it makes a lot of sense when it clicks ya know. If youve got any more issues lemme know

@Turbo Thanks, I'm hoping with the touch mounted on the left I can get most of the bed mapped out. (Since the probe can move more to right of the hotbed)
Can anybody explain how to do the above when you’re bed origin is at the Centre?
I’m using a induction sensor with a special print bed top. My printer is an Ender 5 pro, with a duet 2 maestro board.
My probe offset is -60(x) and -12(y).
What’s the formula you should use to figure out what to program your settings to so my probe doesn’t go off the bed?
Thank you so much for your hell with this!
@Damien it should be very much the same since it's still just a cartesian X Y coordinate system. The only difference with having 0,0 in the center is that the low ends will be negative.
What are your M208 limits?
@Phaedrux right now it’s
M208 X-110 Y-110 Z0 S1
M208 X110 Y85(Due to the HeroMe Gen5 duct installed) Z300 S0
I was thinking of putting together an Excel Spreadsheet and sharing it so it figures out min/max values automatically.
Thank you for your help, by the way!
Alright, so the M557 would as far as you want on the low side because your probe offsets are to the low side, and on the high side it would only be able to reach as far as x110 - x60 and Y85 - y12
@Damien The easiest way to find the ideal M557 for me in practice is to just jog the print head around so that the probe is where I want it and take those XY coordinates.
Ok....I am still so confused!
So I took you suggestion about jogging head around to find what I can work with based on my mods.
As a result, my min/Max axis has changed.
Below is my config. What calculations should I use to figure out how to define the grid again?
Thank so much in advance!!

Maybe it would help if you created a diagram of your bed like this one.
By the way, 60mm in the x direction is quite a bit. Is that really the closest you can get the probe to the nozzle?
Thank you for this. I'll fill in and see if it helps. I'll post image if I still can't work it out.
In the meantime, here are some pics of my setup. With the Induction sensor I have, this is the closest I could get it...
Ok, here it is....What do you think?
@Phaedrux When I input the ranges of the green the probe still goes over the edge. Any pointers?
What's the coordinate of the nozzle that keeps your probe on the bed?
@Phaedrux all the coordinates you see in the green are ones where the sensor stays over the bed. But, so some reason when I put my M557 x-110:55 Y-110:82 S10 other first probe starts at x-50 y-98. 🤨
Then it proceeds to keep probing until off the bed on the x axis, which I then have to emergency kill it.
Ok, I just tried adding the probe offset on one side of the green coordinates and minus’’Ed on the other and that seems to have done the trick.
So my coordinates for M557 is now X-170:-5 Y-122:94. Probing is perfect now.
@Phaedrux Before I continue, I wanted to say a big thank you for your help before! It's good to have people like you helping us all make the most out of our printers.
After all of the above, I have decided to make my origin back to its original place in the corner. I've decided this because I am not getting a good consistent squish across the various spots on my bed. Plus, I am not confident that the mesh on my bed that I got is correct. (See below)
I'm just about to redo my trigger height, but I have a question. In the guide(https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Test_and_calibrate_the_Z_probe), it calls for you to bring your nozzle to the center of the bed and do the paper test. Afterward, it asks you to begin your trigger height routine. BUT, here is my question...
Seeing as my probe offset is so far, isn't it a better idea to bring the probe over the same spot I did the paper check to make sure I have a consistent base height? Or, does the programming for the G29 somehow compensate for this?
Thanks in advance!
