Maestro problems.



  • Trying to get my corexy with a maestro working. After heating the bed and hot end, web control homes, then asks me to adjust the bed. When I click on adjustment buttons, nothing happens. no movement at all. If I click on the ok butto, the pop up disappears, but then nothing else happens. I have gotten it to start a print a couple of times, but it always starts about 10mm away from the bed. I have tried manually homing, then starting print, nothing.
    I even installed the latest web control and firmware bin files, still no go, although I do like the newer version of web control more than the old.

    Here is my config file:
    G90 ; Send absolute coordinates...
    M83 ; ...but relative extruder moves

    Your config file says you have no Z probe, but your homing files are set up to home Z using a Z probe. Was that your intention? See https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/ConfiguringRepRapFirmwareCartesianPrinter#Section_Homing_Z.



  • @dc42 That was definitely not my intention at all.I am new to duet so, learning curve. I did change it to mode 4, using end stop as "probe" and am printing up a new endstop bracket now. Hopefully this will fix the problem. I have read that bltouch can be used on the maestro, is that correct? If so I will order one soon, and thenset it up for probing.



  • I just tried it with the endstop as probe, mode 4, and that seems to have been the problem. Now I can move on to configuring everything else, and dialing it in. Thanks dc42 for your help!

    Yes a BLTouch should work with the Maestro.
