Strange move of 0 Point for Z axis when using mesh

  • Hi,

    I have a strange effect with bed compensation

    I am using the IR probe (V2). To get the correct trigger height I used the method describred with a manually calibrated bed and got 2.07mm for the trigger height.

    So I setup config.g:

    and bed.g

    M208 Y300			; Temporäre Erhöhung maximale Achsenlage

    After running G32 the trigger height changes automatically to 3.57 mm even (glass) bed is levelled quite good. What is me surprising to: When the Level map is displayed all 4 Z-points are around -0.7 instead of 0. So - you have an idea where I made the error?

    Best regards

    Do you have a config-override.g file containing a G31 command that is overriding the trigger height you set in config.g?

  • No - content of config-override.g is below - but shouldn't in that case not also the trigger position after homing different? That changes after G32

    Best regards

  • In the meantime I fear that is related to the fact, that the sensor do not give reproducable results for my glass bed :(.

    What I have done to come to this conclusion: With help of a piece of paper I measured manually 9 points in a 200 x 200 mm square. Afterwards I defined the same square and the 3x3 matrix with M557. The result was frightening: Even for the point where homing was made before a height of 0.3 mm is measured and the other results do not really fit to my manual measured results.

    So - do you think I would get better results wit the new BL touch? I read something about an ultrasonic sensor but didn't see any sensor like this. Any other suggestions?

    Best regards

    Is your glass bed backed by a black surface as the fitting instructions require?

  • No because there is written:

    works as-is if placed directly on a PCB bed heater or other surface that does not reflect strongly.

    and it ist directly placed on a PCB bed heater…

  • and is that PCB Heater perfectly plain or does it have any printing on it?

  • No - there is a printing on it, but I checked already whether there is a difference or not - it does not matter. The lack of accuracy is all over the area

  • administrators

    What colour is the PCB heater?

  • Bet it's red with white printing on it and shiny to boot?

  • It is red to brown with black printing

  • administrators

    Try putting black paper between the bed heater and the glass.

  • Not sure if my issues are same - but def similar … Ive LOST Z0 and cannot seem to get back to it with a BL Touch ...
