Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Here is my implementation of auto bed leveling. I tried to use a capacitive sensor, but couldn't get consistant measurement readings. This has worked really well for me. And the enclosure I designed.

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Confirmed: if you dont put the "G1 Z0" in the start scripts of S3D, but place it within the Z_PROBE_END_SCRIPT variable within Marlin, it starts at the correct setting. Just be sure your z offset setting within marlin are correct so you dont have a crash. I have to admit that I haven't thought abou...

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

It seems that there may be a bug in marlin or S3D where after the G28 command the new updated Z offsets arent relayed back to S3D for some reason or arent updated, so it uses the last known position ("raise_z_after_homing" in marlin firmware) as "Z0" on the DRO within S3D. So a quick hack "LOOSELY" ...

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Sorry, your still having issues, but i think i figured it out... I just bought S3D today to use on my known working autobed leveling Taz 5 (Had been using cura). All of a sudden when using S3D it would attempt to start printing about 15mm above the build plate... I couldnt get S3Ds autobed leveling ...

Re: Home Built my Taz 5

Ordered the plates, and some extras for possibly another build in the future. As for the other source, because I was in a hurry I had been willing to pay WAY too much, like $80 for a pair. So if the bank awards me my money back, I'm ahead. Also here are some screen shots of your Y Cable Chain Mount ...

Re: Make a TAZ 5 with a TAZ 5 ?

I actually bought x end plates from techsavvy, i paid, they never came. He said they got mailed, then told me another set would be shipped, then he cut off all communication, and never did recieve the plates. Im now waiting on my bank to go through the remediation process in an attempt to get my mon...

Re: Thinking about a dual extruder with 1 stepper & 1 nozzle

Just an off the top of my head idea, but what about a dual channel wades extruder that feeds into a single hotend like you have above, and use a single push/pull solenoid to actuate the clutching mechanism that applies the required force on one filament or the other through which would be dictated b...
