Delta Homing - Switch open when finished
Currently setting up a Duet 2 WiFi on a FLSUN QQ-S Pro. Each time I switch the machine on it says that xy and z are not homed. I run the home all and the switches do activate, the LEDs go off but by the end of the process everything has moved back down and the LEDs are back on. My homedelta.g is as below (the slow speed has been left intentionally for the moment:

Which LEDs are you referring to? If you mean the endstop LEDs on the Duet, it's normal for them to be on when the homing switches are not triggered. The important thing is that after homing, Duet Web Control no longer says that the axes haven't been homed.
Thanks for the response. Yes I do mean the end-stop LEDs. The web control does stop saying that axis are not homed. I'll just need to home at start up.

That's normal. When the motors are turned off their position becomes unknown. Even if they haven't obviously moved they will jump to the nearest full step (or two or four and in all different directions) when re-energized so you must rehome to ensure correct positioning.

Aah, I see. Thanks for the clarification, that makes sense now.
