Revision to Using mesh bed compensation

Jason Znack

On a delta printer, it can be quite hard to achieve a consistent trigger height. Z probes that are mounted on the effector are sensitive to any tilting of the effector, because it affects the relative heights of the Z probe and the nozzle. You can reduce this effect by mounting the probe as close to the nozzle as possible. Probing solutions that use the nozzle itself as the probe are usually not affected by effector tilt, but some types are sensitive to the XY position of the nozzle for other reasons.
-Once you are satisfied with your trigger height result (should be between 0 and 1mm, depending on your printer), open your config.g file (this can be found in your DuetWebControl), find the G31 command and enter your trigger height as a negative value in the Z parameter (ex. G31 X0 Y0 Z-.43).
+Once you are satisfied with your trigger height result (should be between 0 and 4mm, depending on your printer), open your config.g file (this can be found in your DuetWebControl), find the G31 command and enter your trigger height in the Z parameter (ex. G31 X0 Y0 Z1.3).
