Bed probing with BLTouch not working

  • I have seen the documentation and believe i have set all up correctly but the G29 cmd replies with an error:
    "Error G29: no valid grid defined for bed probing"
    the machine is a Makergear M2 With Duet2 WiFi

    Not sure what to do next. I have looked at the documentation on the web site but i have to be missing something.

  • M577 X0:180 Y0:250 S10

    You have wrong command to define mesh grid, it should be M557, but you have M577.

  • I new it would be simple but was not seeing it. even after looking at my other 3d printer. Thanks so much. working fine now
