Z probe offset - off edge of bed...
I'm wiring a duet2 wifi up to an X5SA
All sensors and probes now seem to be working (though I think I killed one PWN fan channel...luckily I only need two!)
However, when the print head is at X=0, Y=0, the Z probe is off the side of the bed - which means when I do a home, the Z probe never detects
Does anyone know the appropriate gcode to tell the Z probe to home with an offset of say Z=50, Y=50?
M558 P5 X50 Y50 F500 T5000 H3
But this doesn't seem to have any effect...
@dbrb2 Needs to be done from your G31 IIRC
I had tried some G31 variations
The duet uses the offset here to set the X and Y position when the endstops are hit - but in my case this puts the Z sensor off the edge of the board - so after homing X and Y it will need to move in bot h X and Y before homing Z...
OK, I home Z in the middle of the bed. I have an Ender3 Pro and a Hangtight Titan Aero mount, so my Y is off the bed.

Let get you homing Z first.
Please post your config.g just so we know if you are using RRF2 or 3
And a M115, please

Ah - some progress:
I updated my homez.g to be similar to yours above, and can now home the Z fine - though I do get the following error:
M280: Invalid servo index 3 in M280 command
"Home All" though still crashes the z into the bed. I haven't yet worked out the relationship between the homez.g, homey.g, homez.g, and homeall - It doesn't look like "homeall.g" simply calls he first three in sequence....
My config.g for z probe is:
; Z-Probe M558 P5 I1 H5 F120 T6000 ; set Z probe type to inductive and the dive height + speeds G31 P500 X50 Y50 Z5.0 ; set Z probe trigger value, offset and trigger height M557 X15:290 Y15:290 S20 ; define mesh grid
And M115 gives me:
FIRMWARE_NAME: RepRapFirmware for Duet 2 WiFi/Ethernet FIRMWARE_VERSION: 2.05.1 ELECTRONICS: Duet WiFi 1.02 or later FIRMWARE_DATE: 2020-02-09b1
@dbrb2 Please post your config.g and you homez.g
Bits of config.g does not help us
What probe do you have, BL Touch or something else?
It's an NPN inductive probe. It seems to trigger OK at present when I use "z home" - but "home all axis" causes dthe probe to crash into the bed when it gets to Z - so "home all" doesn't seem to make use of the "homez" gcode....

Have you seen this guide?
Please post homeall.g and homez.g
We will get there!
I think I am getting there - a "home z" now works, as does a "auto bed level compensation"

In addition, the M280 z probe error still occurs - but from what I had seen of the guide you suggested, I had set the probe up as a type 5, which I think is correct....
@dbrb2 as long as the individual homing buttons work, ie homex y and z, you should be able to use this.
Rename homeall.g to OLDhomeall.g
Create a new homeall.g and put the following lines in it.
M98 P"homex.g" M98 P"homey.g" M98 P"homez.g"
@PaulHew Cheers - I'll give it a go first thing in the morning
Thanks - that worked
And the M280 issue is also resolved - I had a deploy and retract probe file, but the inductive probe is always in place - so this was referring to a servo that did not exist
@dbrb2 Pleasure, That is what the forum is for!

Mechanically and electrically all now works. Something I suspect though is wrong in my config still. My 20mmcalibration cube gets this far:
Which doesn't look great, before reliably lifting from the bed entirely. I have set Z quite a few times, and checked the bed temperature. This isn't a problem I had with the old stock board, so I suspect the issue is with my config....perhaps something to do with my extruder settings:
I'll double check them. Will get there though...try again tomorrow!
