Toolboard Heater Tuning and Fan Error
after building my new tool head and mounting everything, I ran into a few problems.
Both Fans (2-wire,12v) won't turn on. Even with thermostatic control.
Its a slice 12v mosquito fan and a sunon 5015 blower.
They are connected to out 2 and out 1
Out1: gnd and 12v or out1
Out2: there is only out2 and 12v
The out.tach is only for 4 wire fans?
I have tried with S1/0 and H-1 or H1:2 T50
The are connected
My last problem: when i am trying to PID Tune the Hotend I got the following message:
Error m303 remote heater auto tune not implemented
And I just fulit the same bltouch message like bevor with a 1.5m long cable.
... Probe already triggered bevor move starts...
I am using the riginal cable. Direct to the screw terminals.
Error m303 remote heater auto tune not implemented
you need to move the heater temporarily to the main board, do the tuning there and then go back to the toolboard.
tuning on the toolboard is not yet implemented
@Veti ok, thanks for the quick tip,
the problem with the fans is solved... I shouldn´t work and post before the first coffee
@Veti what could it be the cause that my bltouch stops probing and I got the message :
G29 Error: Z probe already triggered before probing move started
it occurs while trying to generate the initial heightmap.
post your config, could also be a wiring issue. the bltouch should not be triggered when idle

you are missing the config for the second extruder
what does the bltouch show in the ui when its not deployed?
@Veti the second extruder is for my "fast switching" bowden - direct drive setup.
I used the so-called EVA mod for my printhead, I only have to change 2 screws and 1 piece of plastic to convert my setup from direct to Bowden and vice versa. the Extruder is driven from the Toolboard stepper driver.
This Toolhead can be used for a Hemera, volcano, mosquito or dragon Hotend, standard or Idex, and with BMG or Titan extruders.
when in Bowden mode: the duet 3 mainboard drives it
but I don't want to switch config... only hardware changes
at the moment I´m looking for a solution on how to properly mount the tool board when I use the Bowden setup.
when in direct drive I've mounted it on the backside of the Nema with a printed holder.
its a really nice design,
@Veti Z-Probe 0
and the red and blue lights are constantly on.
when doing a standard homeZ. it works fine.
but when i try to do a mesh with 20mm spacing, it stops with the same error message after a random number of points.. sometimes 40 spots , sometimes only 15 spots
a lot of the bltouch problems come from bad wiring.
@Veti perhaps this one is software related.
when i restart the printer without touching the head, it works perfekt....sometimes up to 10 times in a row ..
@Veti and when the error occurs, the bltouch is blinkin red and in the dwc i can read z-probe 1000
have you updated the bootloader?

the bootloader not the firmware. please read the thread.

Is it to do with the BLtouch being on the toolboard but the z drivers being on the main board?
I believe the restriction is still in place about the probe being in a different board
@Veti yes , but it says bootloader not available, and i cant find the file. i Have to update via can, do i need the ToolLc1 firmware also or only the bootloader file ?
Veti last edited by Veti
whats the error message when you issue the bootloader update?
the bootloader files are here as its written in the documentation.
@Veti bootloader not found
I looked again in the toolboard documentation, but i cant find the link to the bootloader, there is only a link to GitHub with the step files....
do i need only the samc21.bin or the .elf file also?
any additional files needed?
i added the 3 lines for the workaround also to the end of my config.g
i will test if now the mesh completes without errors
@Veti the samc21 from your link worked.

now, i´m really curious what the bltouch does

Is that the right combination of firmwares ?

@Veti the bootloader doesent make a big difference
this time, it completes perhaps 40% of my build area bevor it stops and starts blinking.
the workaround lines of code are also in place....

@Frederik You could try a lower speed in M558. I use 6000.
@Stephen6309 i will try, moment
you could also try adjusting the grub screw on the top of the bltouch.
