It's a smart effector I've tried loads of heights and all with the same results fine in parts of the bed too high in others
currently at -0.08 trigger height.
I always make sure mesh is disabled as per delta cal docs when probing I'm gonna fit the new endstops and try again because nothing is making any difference, appreciate everybody helping at least I have a better understanding of reprap though if I don't get this to work not sure I'll remember it.
The extruder is suspended via springs so the bowden will flex as the effector moves but this is the standard setup for this printer and the same setup which prints with the original board .i.e. it's not stopping the nozzle from reaching the extremities of the bed infact the bowden is longer than the standard supplied bowden as I didn't like it flashing the trigger on movement now it doesn't flash unless it's probing.
I have also probed without the bowden or filament attached with no more success than I have now.
Hope that explains it.
I feel like I am yeah.... no single layer yet setting up retraction/unretract FR etc which look good now(nimble so not used one before)
Trigger height is now Z-0.064 ....from my point of view not sure what the point of the Smart Effector is tbph but causing 6 weeks of frustration as what it reports... well is misleading.
i'll keep tweaking settings ..see if it will finally print that 1st layer .
Below print is mesh enabled 2 passes 8 mm/sec I measure it at .2 mm with calipers layer height is .2 mm so not sure what to change now.
I've rechecked extruder calibration its on the money.
Thanks to everyone for your help.
No they are set to 80 ...this is a Gorrila board which as far as I know is chit-tu based ? so M500 is like M8500 and not sure all the commands for it are known and the board is locked down... again as far as I know.
I wish it was set wrong...NexxCat was kind enough to have sliced the test file for me and it's very close so just using that to adjust trigger height..
it's really close but the Z hop seems to be an issue.
Can I ask is Z hop enabled in the bed level test file you kindly sliced for me ?
Or is that controlled via config.g ? ...so print files call M207: Retraction if Z hop is set on M207 in config.g Z hop is invoked on all Retractions ?
Sorry been having net issues i'll adjust it 0.01 increments see if it works better.
It was extruding and really sticking but as it did the next pass it was squishing too hard almost transparent and curling up at the outer edges indented in the middle as it cooled
