Probe retract with every G30 after update

  • I just updated my Duet Wifi that I am using on my Kossel Pro from 1.18.1 to 1.21, and now every time that I run a G30 command it retracts the probe. This is causing some serious problems since I am manually deploying the probe, so when I run Auto Delta Calibration it probes once, retracts the probe, and then all the future G30 commands fail. I tested manually running G30 P0 X-73.6 Y-42.5 Z-99999 and even then it retracted the probe after triggering on the bed. Anyone know why it is doing this? And how to fix it?

    Here is my config.g:
    ; Think3DPrint3D configuration file for Mini Kossel for testing Duet WiFi

    Here is my bed.g:
    ; Auto calibration routine for delta printers
    ; Before running this, you should have set up your zprobe Z offset to suit your build, in the G31 command in config.g.

    M561 ; clear any bed transform, otherwise homing may be at the wrong height
    G31 X0 Y0 ; don't want any probe offset for this
    G28 ; home the printer

    ;*** Remove the following line if your Z probe does not need to be deployed
    ;M98 Pdeployprobe.g ; deploy the mechanical Z probe

    ; The first time the mechanical probe is used after deployment, it gives slightly different results.
    ; So do an extra dummy probe here. The value stored gets overwritten later. You can remove this if you use an IR probe.

  • administrators

    Use M401 to deploy the probe at the start of your bed.g file (and M402 to retract it at the end, which you are already doing). Then it won't run the deploy/retract cycle on every G30 move in bed.g.

  • That worked. Thanks!
