Z probe on non Duet control board.

  • Printer, Anycubic Kossell Linear Plus.
    Board, Trigorilla.
    Ok, so the smart effector is assembled, fans working hotend coming to temperature lights working etc. Now, the Duet instructions say that the piezzo/pressure side will work with 3 wires, the 4th wire being for programming from a Duet Wi Fi board. Would I be right in assuming it will work the same as similar z probes on the 3 wires ( 3.3V gnd and z output)?
    As each limit switch connector has 2 sets of 3 pins on the stock Trigorilla board, can I connect the probe to one set of pins and leave the other set connected to the Z limit switch for Z homing. Both will not be in use at the same time..... Or have I gone barking mad to even think of such a thing. Finally, I will have to delve into the firmware, Marlin 1.1.8 . Any suggestions as to what leveling settings to use? Duet instructions only give guidence for their firmware.....

    The Smart Effector should work with your board connected as you describe provided that the endstop input that you connect it to doesn't have a low value pull-up resistor and/or an LED connected to it. Be careful to get the Vcc and ground connections the right way round. 5V power is ok.

    I can't help you with Marlin settings for bed probing.

  • Hi, many thanks, all working nicely, I found a version of Marlin configured for piezo Z probe. Just had to invert Z min and alter rod length. Most impressive when working. A nice addition to my Linear plus.
