Anycubic Linear + Delta autohome issue

  • 3_1533574006597_config.g 2_1533574006597_homedelta.g 1_1533574006597_bed.g 0_1533574006596_config-override.g Anycubic Linear + Delta with Duet 3d and Smart Effector


    I've just returned back to this printer after a few months as I was recovering from an operation so I'm struggling to remember exactly what I did to break it.

    Basically when I press autohome, it seems like one of the axis is going down whilst the others go up. But then sometimes it looks like it is skipping back and forth. I really don't know what's wrong.

    I've made a video which I'll link (this is after pressing autohome) and I've attached the important files (let me know if I've missed an important one). Please somebody tell me where I'm going wrong.

    This only seemed to happen when I had a problem with the extruder which i mentioned on here, and I changed the stepper settings from 663 steps per mm to 96 as it looked to be incorrectly set.

    Many Thanks

  • Looks like your motor wiring is not correct. Did you checked if the motor windings match the connections on the board?

  • administrators

    Test the motor that is going down using G92 followed by G1 S2 moves, as described at If that motor always goes down whether you command it up or down then there is either a bad connection in the motor cable, or possibly a blown stepper driver chip, or just possibly a blown motor.

  • Please keep in mind that the Anycubic Kossel has at least one published manual in which it indicates the motor pattern incorrectly. The pattern, if facing the machine(where the lcd is typically mounted), X is to your left. Z is in the MIDDLE, and Y is on the right upright. Another way to think about it is that starting with X on the left upright, if you go counterclockwise you'll have X -> Y > Z.

    This single error has caused so many issues for Anycubic I started writing an auto-response to people posting in the marlin github.

    I made this mistake when I originally purchased a Kossel.... but then I got pissed off at Anycubic and returned it, turned it into two Ender 3's. 😃

    Anyways, I hoep this is your issue.

  • Guys, I just performed a home perfectly.

    I had the motors set incorrectly (x>z>y) and the end stops set incorrectly - along with a loose connection on one.

    Thanks a bunch. will get to work on getting it to print later 🙂

  • @sparkymark79 glad that was it man.. lol, between the fb groups, forums, and github repos I regular... I have probably seen people with this problem close to a hundred times at this point.. I still have the manual with the incorrect(but seemingly correct-looking) layout.


Looks like your connection to Duet3D was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
