X axis homes to the wrong direction

  • Hi

    So I have been trying to figure out how to change the X home direction but alas I am failing. This all started with trying to get the axis actually moving in the right planes. Y moves home in the direction I want now etc but X still gives me hassles as it wants to home to the + side. How can I set this in firmware? I believe the 569 setting needs to be changed however if I change this it just makes everything go in diagonals. i have also tried switching the between the drivers but I still end up in the same place. config as follows:

  • This is usually caused by one of the motor directions (M569) being incorrect. You can try this https://duet3d.com/wiki/Configuring_RepRapFirmware_for_a_CoreXY_printer#Movement_section

    Alternatively, there are only 4 possible combinations so you can use trial and error. Assuming your two XY drives are P0 and P1, the combinations are:

    P0 S0 and P1 S0
    P0 S0 and P1 S1
    P0 S1 and P1 S0
    P0 S1 and P1 S1.

  • Sorted had to change the second line to S1. Now when I home after it hits the endstops there is a screeching noise.

  • M569 P0 S1 ; Drive 0 goes forwards
    M569 P1 S0 ; Drive 1 goes forwards

    Sorry my english is failing me today I meant I had to do this after I swapped the drivers around. Now just that screeching noise and to get Z to actually home

    Is it just a problem with X homing in the wrong direction, or are the X jog buttons also moving the head the wrong way?

    Which corner of the bed are you calling X=0 Y=0, and which directions are you calling +X and +Y ?

  • all jogs right now from what I can see. Just z does not home when homing all axis now

  • Got it thank you so much its homing now. And its just the mesh levelling that I need to sort out. Seems it probes a few points then says that that the probe was activated at the next point already.

    Increase the dive height. It's the H parameter in the M558 command.
