[SOLVED] Z-probe not firing

Post by new » Sat Jun 10, 2017 1:28 pm

when i try the delta auto calibration i get an error in the G Code consale saying "Error: Z probe was not triggered during probing move". The johnSl board does light up when i apply pressure to the FSR however.

What printer? Did you ever get successful auto config? Attach your config file and PICs of FSRs. Need more info.

I have the DIY D300VS printer. I did get a successful auto config. Pictures of my FSRs are linked here http://imgur.com/a/Hrqgg

Here is my config.g file:

Configuration file for UltiBots D300 V-Slot Delta 3D Printer
; version 1.0 for RepRapFirmware version 1.18.1

; Communication and general
M111 S0 ; Debug off
M550 PD300VS ; Machine name and Netbios name (can be anything you like)
M551 XXXXX ; Machine password (used for FTP)
; *** If you have more than one Duet on your network, they must all have different MAC addresses, so change the last digits
M540 P0xBE:0xEF:0xDE:0xAD:0xFE:0xEF ; MAC Address

M569 P2 S0 ; Drive 2 goes forwards (Z tower)
M569 P3 S1 ; Drive 3 goes forwards (extruder 1)

M574 X2 Y2 Z2 S1 ; Set endstop configuration (all endstops at high end, active high)

; *** The homed height is deliberately set too high in the following - these will be adjusted with delta auto-calibration
M665 R211.75 L360.31 B140 H445.00 X0.0 Y0.0 Z0.0 ; Set delta radius, diagonal rod length, printable radius and homed height
M666 X0.0 Y0.0 Z0.0 ; Endstop offset adjustments, these will be adjusted with delta auto-calibration

M350 X64 Y64 Z64 E16 I1 ; Set microstepping to 32 for X, Y and Z and 16 for extruder stepper with interpolation

Thanks for details. I don't know what is causing this. I searched the Duet3D forum and didn't see the obvious. Let's schedule a support phone call. I am in the office Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week. Email support )at( ultibots dotcom with your name, number, and a good time to reach you.

Did you get this resolved? I've seen that error in testing accelerometer probes. However, in this case I suspect the issue is a mis-wiring issue from the JohnSL to Duet.

Update... spoke with customer last week. All is OK he had mis-wired the board as you suspected.
