Use endstops only for homing



  • Is it possible to setup the Duet Wifi 2 firmware to use endstops only for homing and auto bed compensation/probing?

    I have been reading through the documentation and have not been able to find this anywhere. I'm using a Piezo Z-Probe and it's a bit too sensitive on the X-axis so I'd like to disable the false triggers during printing as I would only need them for homing and bed leveling.

    Thanks



  • By default the Duet does not monitor end stops and probes during standard movements. If you look at how the Gcode commands work, specifically the G0 and G1 (https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Gcode#Section_G0_G1_Move), you will see that it have an H-parameter which if set to 1 (example "G1 X23 Y45 H1") will check the endstops and if triggered, stop.

    For probes, they only affect the movements when probing, using the G30 command (https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Gcode#Section_G30_Single_Z_Probe).



  • Thank you Jacotheron, I'm still setting everything up and haven't tried printing yet so wasn't sure if this would have been an issue or not.
