RE: IR Z probe issues
@droftarts ohhh boy I cant thank you enough, it's a bad IR sensor , I ran a new set of wires from the sensor to control board and it's still not seeing a input. Thank you for taking the time to help. I was about to purchase a new duet lol. I had already purchased a mini ir board just in case. I'll have one friday.
RE: IR Z probe issues
@droftarts thank you for helping, the pink is gone but it's still reading 310 without anything plugged in. Im sorry for being a goober, I just got so frustrated after trying to get it updated. And I have forgotten everything in how to set these up.
IR Z probe issues
Hello , I have a duet wifi and the mini IR sensor. My printer has been down since 1.9fw for rebuild . I finally got everything together and built and firmware updated I think maybe I having a issue.
My z probe reading in the web gui is 320 inside a pink/red highlighted box. The led on IR sensor triggers when near the bed but the value of 320 never changes more than +/-10. Even if I unplug the z probe the reading is still 320 and pink/red.
Any idea what's going on here? I was told theres a way to remap the input pin for the ir sensor. Please help, I am totally lost on this one.

Breakthrough today with the duet
So each and everyday i learn a bit more about the duet wifi.
After switching from G32 to G29 mesh leveling most of my issues disappeared.
I made a 1 layer stl with 25mm long single extrusion width lines in coordination with the probing spots. I dialed in my z height with baby steps then adjusted the z offset in the G31 command. I use G29 S1 in my starting script and each and every test print i have done tonight has been perfect, even tpu , ninjaflex ! I absolutly love the duet and firmware!!!!
RE: Baby Steps z offset
This is exactly what i was looking for , i was looking to create a stl for the ft5 to dial this in , using a simular print like my mk2 really didnt work well. Knowing now how it works i beleive i can make a better "z calibration" print . If i understand you correctly all i have to do is break the squarewave into short segments . That way you should see results quicker.
Would something like this work?
Thanks for all the help i am truly loving my setup!
Baby Steps z offset
Coming from the prusa mk2 (baby steps) function to have . what i am wanting to know is while testing this i notice that it doesn't seam to be real time adjustment.
i made a stl to print a 2 micron thick square wave to encompass the bed. while printing this i tried dialing in the z offset to get the perfect squish.
can someone please explain the exact function and how its suppose to be utilized.
how i am use to a z offset is a bit different than what i am seeing.
am i suppose to subtract or add my z offset to my offset in config g ? do i have to enter it each time i print ?
i think this is a really good feature and can be incredibly useful in getting that perfect first layer.
(on my prusa mk2 i dial in my z offset and normally i leave it unless i change filament to abs or tpu , then i change the z as needed on the fly.
if it looks a bit too squished i raise it . )
i really like this feature and if any help is needed testing i am glad to help.
it has really helped me get a great first layer just now on ninja flex which i have been having issues with since i installed my duet.
