M915 stall detection problems with sensorless homing

  • I have a Duet3 MB and my firmware is MB6HC 3.1.1. I am configuring the X axis to test sensorless homing.
    If I set M915 X S2 R0 F0 H200, it appear the motor turn clockwise then it stop. I think it present the motor happen stall detection.
    If I set M915 X S3 R0 F0 H200, it appear the motor turn counterclockwise continuously. I think it present no happen stall detection. I try to stop motor but no response.

    My config.g is show below :

    First of all, don't use native x256 microstepping in M350. The required step rate will be too high at high speeds. The default x16 with interpolation works well in most cases, although extruders with low steps/mm sometimes work better at x32 or x64.

    If that doesn't solve the problem, try reducing the current further for homing in your M913 command.

    Make sure that the belt is tight enough to provide a hard stall and avoid any possibility of the belt jumping teeth. Choose the homing direction so that the length of belt between the carriage and the motor pulley that is under tension is short at the point of stall.

  • @dc42 I can do stall detection when I use native x16 microstepping in M350. Thanks.
