1.11 to 1.21 on Ormerod 2, X home only moves 5mm and zeros

  • So It's been a while since I upgraded the firmware on my Ormerod 2, and I'd thought I'd give it a go this weekend since I had some time.
    As far as I can tell everything went well, I was able to use the new PID tuning.

    My problem is this, I can't get the X axis to home properly. (I did read the notes and added the S2 flag to the Z axis movements. but I'm still getting strange behavior, when I home X I get the following:

    • Z axis moves Up
    • X axis moves negative ~5mm
    • X axis sets current position to x=0mm
    • Z axis moves down

    When I home All I get this behavior:

    • Z axis Moves Up
    • X axis moves negative ~5mm, and Y axis goes until it hits the homing switch
    • Y Axis moves back and hit homing switch again
    • X & Y zero
    • Z Moves down

    I checked the HomeX & HomeAll files in the GitHub and I don't see anything different from mine (FYI the S2 flag is missing in the GitHub files). I also looked at the config file in the GitHub and didn't see any obvious differences there.

    I've confirmed that the Z probe is working correctly in the web interface, it's reading 0 the whole time the home operation runs - I also tried inverting it so it read 1000 the whole time; and the homing behavior was the same. FYI I'm using the DC42 smart probe (small version)

    I assume I've missed something stupid and obvious, can't wait to find out what 😄 Below are my Homeall, HomeX, and config Files:
