ender 5 plus

  • i am working on an ender 5 plus with a duet wifi

    but I have a problem

    when I am home x, y I cannot go to the minus position only the plus position
    but am already at end stops (right rear)

    i'm still figuring out files
    z home.g

    and independent z axes (P2 left z axes: P4right z axes)

    Take a look at the following posts.


    If you go through the steps outlined in those posts an identify where 0,0 should be, and then where the endstops are located physically and configured correctly in M574 then you can check motor direction so that -x goes to the left and -y goes to the front. Then the direction of the homing moves may need to be changed to move the correct direction to the endstops.

    If you still can't figure it out, post your config and homing files.

  • I have been busy with it continue to have problems

    the M569 drivers the driver rotation is good,
    when i home x,y go to the good rotation right back corner

    home x, y i can move them after when amhomeall.g send M564 S 0

    home z is problems ;G28 Z
    Error: Z probe already triggered at start of probing move

    home all same problem first home x,y,z send m564
    then i can do the home all axis

    sorry for me bad english i translate with google translate

    homex.g homey.g homez.g homeall.g

    Post your config.g as well.

    With 0,0 in the front left corner does -x go to the left and -y go to the front?

  • Moderator

    What firmware version are you using? Can you post the results of M122 as well?

  • in config.g I have M208 on x0 y0

    home x, y is going in the right direction, but no response after home should send M564 S0

    then I can move axes in dwc -x left and -y forward

    You should update your firmware to 2.05.1

    Upload this zip file as is (do not extract it) to the /sys folder

    @Kevin said in ender 5 plus:

    home z is problems ;G28 Z
    Error: Z probe already triggered at start of probing move

    What type of Z probe are you trying to use?

    Your homeall is setup to use a probe and then the endstop, which is not ideal. You also should not need to have a U axis at all. Your maxima is set to negative values and your endstops aren't configured for the right location.

    Try making the following changes to your config.g homeall.g and homez.g files. You can copy and paste my text over yours.

    With this new config file and homeall test to make sure the motors are still going in the correct direction. -x to the left, +x to the right, -y to the front, +y to the back. If the direction isn't like that you will need to reverse the motor direction in M569 for either axis.

    M569 P0 S0 ; physical drive 0 X
    M569 P1 S0 ; physical drive 1 Y

    Once the machine is homing correctly with the probe you can then move on to doing bed tilt correction using this method.


  • i am using the DC42's IR sensor for z switch / probe

    i am going to try your files from config.g and home files

  • This post is deleted!

  • now it works home is right back corner

    • goes left + goes right

    home = x330 y350
    0,0 left front corner

  • Moderator

    Ok good, that sounds correct now.

    Is the probe working?

  • probe works with height .

    now I can find out further with homez.g

    thanks for the quick responses

  • Moderator

    For your home Z, I would change it to just home the Z axis with the probe. Then use G32 which calls bed.g to do the tilt correction as described in the link I provided above. You'll need to add M671 command to your config.g that defines the position of the lead screws and then configure bed.g to probe at two locations close to the lead screws. The link describes it in more detail.

  • I've been working on the Bed leveling with multiple independent Z motors

    Bed adjustment screw locations
    M671 X-20: 370 Y0: 0 S2; leadscrew locations
    (if this is correct left x-20/y200 right x350(max)/y200)

    M561; clear any bed transform
    G30 P0 X5 Y165 Z-99999; probe near a leadscrew left
    G30 P1 X325 Y165 Z-99999 S2; probe near a leadscrew right

    but after G32 only the left drops and does not rise after a few tries this is the result

    Leadscrew adjustments made: -0.571 0.573, used points 2, deviation before 0.470 after 0.000

    Leadscrew adjustments made: -0.320 0.350 , points used 2, deviation before 0.275 after 0.000

    M98 P "0: / macros / G32 HOME"
    Leadscrew adjustments made: -0.193 0.182, points used 2, deviation before 0.154 after 0.000

    after each g32 left sinks and tilts the bed

    what am I doing wrong?

  • Moderator

    Please post your entire config.g

    Which Z motor driver is on which side of the bed? The order of the driver needs to match the order of the points to probe.

    You must use the M671 command to define the X and Y coordinates of the leadscrews. The M671 command must come after the M584 command and must specify the same number of X and Y coordinates as the number of motors assigned to the Z axis in the M584 command; and these coordinates must be in the same order as the driver numbers of the associated motors in the M584 command. The M671 command must also come after any M667 or M669 command.

    Can you post a video of it in action?

  • I try to uploud the movie but the files are too big

  • Moderator

    dropbox, or google drive, box, onedrive, youtube, vimeo, something like that.

  • oke i go try

  • https://youtu.be/RuRSe_RKp9U


    1 movie is home and then g32 several times

  • Moderator

    Are you using a macro called G32 HOME? Or are you using just G32 (which calls bed.g)?

  • i tried both normal G32 (bed.g) and macro G32 same settings as bed.g
