Revision to Test and calibrate the Z probe

David Crocker

 
# Make sure the dynamic test is successful (Z probe stops when it senses the bed) before doing this.
# Ensure that the Z offset in G31 in config.g is set to 0, these steps will be used to measure this actual offset. (send G31 Z0 to set it to 0).
# Use the X and Y jog buttons to position the nozzle over the centre of the bed
# Jog the nozzle down until it is just touching the bed or just gripping a sheet of paper. If you can't getthe firmware doesn't let you jor it lowdown far enough, send G92 Z10M564 S0 to trick the firmware into thinking the nozzle is higher than it actually isdisable axis limits.
# Jog the nozzle down until it is just touching the bed or just gripping a sheet of paper. If you can't getthe firmware doesn't let you jor it lowdown far enough, send G92 Z10M564 S0 to trick the firmware into thinking the nozzle is higher than it actually isdisable axis limits.
# Once you have the nozzle touching the bed, send command G92 Z0 to tell the firmware that the head is at Z=0
# Jog the head up by 5 to 10mm
