BL touch question

  • BL Touch question… Due to the design of my printer (I only have Z rails in the back of the printer), I am getting a little bounce/vibration in my bed running the bl touch and mesh leveling. Is there a way to adjust the amount it compensates in Z or tone it down a bit so there isnt as much z movement during the print? I know you can taper it off, but that wont help me. Also, I would like to switch back to manual leveling temporarily and still use my bl touch as my z stop to make 100% sure the issue I am having is because of the mesh leveling. What would I keep in the bl touch code to just use it as an endstop? Or could I just disable mesh leveling and it would still use the bl touch for a z stop?
    Here is my bl touch code;
    ; Endstops

    M574 X1 Y1 Z1 S0 ; Define active high microswitches

    ; BL Touch
    M307 H3 A-1 C-1 D-1
    M557 X10:210 Y10:210 S25
    M558 P5 X0 Y0 Z1 H5 F500 T2000
    G31 X53 Y-5 Z.30 P25

    thank you!

    When you say "manual levelling", do you mean running G29 with the Z probe type set to zero, or something else?

  • By manual leveling I meant disable the compensation and level the bed by using the 4 corner knobs under the bed to get the bed level before a print. I was originally doing this with a z microswitch as my endstop, but removed that when I installed the bl touch. So I would like to disable the compensation, but still use the bl touch as my z endstop.

    You can do that, just don't run G29.
