Smart Effector Crashing

  • I have been wracking my brain trying to set my Duet Wifi up with my Smart Effector, but for some reason the Effector is smashing into the bed on Delta Calibration.

    Here are my Config.g settings, Please let me know what im doing wrong.

    Also is there any way to slowdown the initial drop until i can get the effector reading out the bed.

    Thanks to all in advance 🙂

  • Maybe the hover height is below the physical bed height.

  • And where would i see the Hover Height to edit?

    The odd thing is the LED goes off if i tap the effector and I'm seeing the LED lit once the unit is powered on.

    H is the trigger set height so below that it expects to trigger
    F is the feed rate so reducing that number will reduce the plunge speed during calibration

    M557 R160 S20 ; Define mesh grid R is greater than your print area M665 R135.4 L288.16 B105 H300(R this should be Max 105)

    Green led should be off until the strain gauge is activated so on if you press it off if nozzle is not touching anything.
    Does it flash when first switched on?

    Also try turning hotend fan off during probing if on M106 P1 S0 as some fans with cause the effector to trigger

  • Hey all I looked over my config and realized I'm an idiot. I was pulling specs off a site and they were way off. I lowered it and was able to get the probe to work properly and just need to wait until I'm off work to load some filament in and get started. thanks again guys!!
