Help troubleshooting after upgrade to RRF3 (sensorless homing)
After upgrading to the RRF3, one of my printers is doing something weird. It is a cartesian printer with steel frame and I set it up to work sensorless, which after a lot of trial and error turned out to work very good. However, after upgrading to RRF3 sometimes the Y homing does not get triggered. It seems to be quite random, sometimes it works and some other times it doesn't. Here is my homey.g and homeall.g. The issue pops up in both of them.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Can you post your config.g as well?
Can you try a higher homing speed than 3600?
@Phaedrux config.g is as follows

I tried F4800 for the Y homing speed and worked just fine...
I tried F4800 for the Y homing speed and worked just fine...
So it's working more consistently now with a higher speed?
@Phaedrux I just tried once because I have to print some parts wiht this printe. Tomorrow I will investigate further on this direction. Do you thing it has something to do with the homing speed?
Well tall detection requires a certain amount of speed to be able to detect a stall correctly.
But if it's occasionally not triggering it could be on the verge of too slow.
@Phaedrux somehow the dimensions on that formula do not seem right, but I might be missing something probably... anyway, thanks for the pointer. Curious how this showed up just after the upgrade...
So, the printer has undergone several Y-homings since I changed the speed and has suffered 0 fails, so I would say the issue is solved. Thanks again!
