Smart Effector delta auto calibration speed



  • I have just completed a delta upgrade to Duet Wi Fi and trying to configure it. The auto calibrate G29 and G32 functions are painfully slow. My towers are 400mm high and the calibration only runs at 0.5 mm/sec travel speed. How can i speed this up, 13 mins just to reach the bed is unuseable. Also the height map is not saved, how is this done?
    I would appreciate anybodys help with correct coding?

    Please post your config.g and bed.g files.



  • You're not sending G29 or G32 while the towers are homed are you? Generally what I do is G28 to home all towers. Then move the nozzle down manually, it will respect that movement speed. I usually do something link G0 X0 Y0 Z5 F1800. Then I will do a G30 to make it aware of the zero point. Then you do your G32 or G29. I don't really use G29, I couldn't tell you about its use.



  • bed.g
    config.g

    Thanks blt3dp. yes i was starting from the top. I have now modified bed.g to your suggestion and that works better. Still is very slow to do a 6 point mesh though.
    I would appreciate a quick look at my two files attached and welcome any other update suggestions.

    From your config.g file:

    M558 P5 R0.4 H30 F1200 T0

    T0 is incorrect, it specifies the travel speed between probe points. Try e.g. T6000.



  • ok will do thanks



  • That's better. I thought that T was referring to the tool no. as i could not find any other reference to it referring to speed.
    Thanks



  • Now I have a question on the Panel Due. My screen is a 4.3 but the software thinks it is a 7 inch. How do i recalibrate it. The calibration dots don't respond?

    Flash the correct firmware binary.
