I used the 5 pin version of this recently. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000708135064.html seems to fit both the genuine and cloned BL Touch, but the catches are just ever so slightly smaller so its not as secure as the genuine wire. Seems to be on par with the cloned though.
A dab of hotglue or silastic for peace of mind might be a good idea, or to get genuine JST parts from a repurable source..
We are currently running reprap Firmware V3.2, can we speak about this topic as meta command example?
It will be a useful for us! There is a C, C++ programmer in our team who can't wait to start playing with it!!
We tried to get a proper Z-offset value but, in some cases, due to thermal dilatation (between PLA at 30C chamber temperature and ABS at 90C) we need to use baby stepping. Did you find a solution to that issue ?
You may find using P0 helpful to have as user macros in order to switch the active tool without running the tool change macro files so you can switch which IDEX head is active without having the heatup, purge or whatever else you do with your IDEX tool before you start heating.
Thank you for all the informations, sorry we're late to answer but we were working a lot on our 3d printer, we're still experiencing some troubles, but nothing very disturbing.
@Catalin_RO thanks for all the clarifications on what cable you use and your explaination. We are currently working on changing the wiring of the printer to put some bigger shielded cable and ground everything the right way. As you said, using Nema23 is more than enough to move our gantry, and as you pointed we have more than enough torque, so for the next machine it will be open to amelioration on choosing better motors.
Again, thanks, that's very nice to see that people care about other's problems and respond very quickly !
