New firmware (Klipper) on TAZ 6

Look here for custom firmware, networked 3D printer hosts like OctoPrint, and more!

Hi Clee,

The Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER we use in Marlin is -1.377.
Awesome, thanks!

BTW, I downloaded Klipper today to my workstation and managed to hack Cura 2 to connect to it. The problem I immediately ran into is that Klipper does not let me move an axis without homing, but on the TAZ, it is necessary to lift the nozzle before homing otherwise the nozzle crashes on the homing button, which is exactly what happened when I did a G28. How did you get past that problem?

I edited klippy/ and turned CartKinematics::_check_endstops into a noop, basically.

It’s a nasty hack, and I’m sure there’s a better way to solve the issue, but for now it lets me manually G1 Z+10 so that homing works.

(On other printers, you’re supposed to do an M84, and then manually position the Z, but that doesn’t really work so well on the TAZ... the Z doesn’t budge for me at all whether the motors are on or off.)
