Nozzle's Z-coordinate Up & Down when moving across X-axis?

  • I am using an FLSUN QQ-S Pro Delta printer w/ a Duet 2 Wifi board & a BLTouch, and whenever I attempt to move the nozzle across the X-axis, Z goes up when X+50, and down when X-50... But going from Y-50 and Y+50 has no issues. Any inputs appreciated!

    ; If your Z probe has significantly different trigger heights depending on XY position, adjust the H parameters in the G30 commands accordingly. The value of each H parameter should be (trigger height at that XY position) - (trigger height at centre of bed)

    G29 S1 ; enables mesh leveling

    First off, don't load the heightmap at boot up. Only load it after you've used the z probe to define where Z0 is. Loading it at startup can lead to some unintended z offsets. A good place to load it is in the slicer start gcode after Z0 has been defined by the probe using G30.

    So for a delta...

    G28 to home the towers
    G32 to auto calibrate
    G30 at the center of the bed
    G29 S1 to load the heightmap

    This also means that you may need to redo the heightmap.

    Also, moving the Z axis depending on bed position sounds a lot like the effects of mesh compensation. What does your heightmap look like? Does it match to how the nozzle is moving?

  • This is currently how it looks


    It does in fact match up with the way the nozzle is moving*
