Dual Z, Dual End stop issue

  • Hi,

    I am having a problem with homing my two independent stepper z-axis with their relevant end stops.

    I am using the two end-stops to ensure the bed is mechanically level before using a z IR probe to take out any other bed warp issues

    The expected behaviour is that when homing, both steppers home (z & u axis), until their respective end-stop is activated - ensuring a level home.

    At the moment, both steppers home, until both the Z and U end stop's are triggers, however, trigging the U axis endstop does nothing to the U axis stepper, however triggering the Z axis one stops the Z axis stepper as expected. Stopping both U & Z axis end stops stop both axis.

    could you kindly check my config.g and homez.g to make sure i am not doing any thing daft?

    Make sure you have connected the U endstop switch to the E0 (not E1) endstop input, and test it using the Machine Properties page of DWC where it will show up as endstop 3.
