Z-probe not moving down to touch the bed

  • Hi guys,

    I am new here and looking forward to contribute.

    I have an FLSun QQ-S Pro and installed a DUET 2 ethernet this week. Currently I have 2 issues. Homing & Probing
    When I press "home all axis" and the printer has to move a larger distance. It stops homing after the first endstop is triggered. After I press it a second time it homes on all Endstops. Suggestions?
    I have the Z-probe connected and everything works almost as expected. Except for the triggering move. The probe moves across the bed without moving downward to actually click the trigger. Suggestions?

    ; Use S-1 for measurements only, without calculations. Use S4 for endstop heights and Z-height only. Use S6 for full 6 factors
    ; 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)

    Please post your homedelta.g file.

    What firmware version are you using?

    What type of probe is it?

    What do you have in your slicer start gcode?

  • @Phaedrux Thanks for your reply!

    What firmware version are you using?
    firmware version 2.03
    What type of probe is it?
    It is a digital switch that comes standard with the printer. So i don't level before every print as the bed on my printer is fixed.
    What do you have in your slicer start gcode?
    Not there yet, I just put in the board and trying to get it to work. I haven't printed anyhting yet.

  • @Brouwi
    does it flash as triggered in DWC dashboard then move ? as you may need to invert the switch
    Also your dive height is 0 set it to 25
