How to offset the X Y values in Marlin for Rostock?
May 28, 2015 10:46AM
Hello, I have built a Delta Rostock 3D printer and I have some diffcluties to adjust the X Y and Z zero.
As you can see on the picture, I have three optical endstop wich can not easely be adjusted:



So, I have to raising up the Z lentgh travel like this:



in order to not break my glass bed when I check the X tower:



idem for the Y tower:



and for the Z tower:



How can I do to offset the zero value of each tower in Marlin because I can't do it with my endstop?

I don't use Marlin, however most delta firmwares including some versions of Marlin support the M666 command, see [reprap.org].

I don't know and this does not answer your question.
Just a FYI in case you are not going to do it but you probably should secure your heat cartridge and thermometer wires to your heat sink with zip tie or something. I have a bad feeling letting those wire joints take all the movement.

It might be pointless at this late date, but I use Marlin.
(numbers are examples only)
1)Use 'M666 X-2.3' to adjust the X-tower end-stop offset by -2.3mm.
2)Same for the Y and Z towers. You can mix and match any that you want.
3)These three offsets MUST be negative for some reason.
4)This means the max z-height must be smaller than actual height so that the negative offset values will 'pull' it down to the actual bed height.
4)M666 H220 will set the max height between the nozzle and the bed surface to 220mm (for example). Use a ruler to measure the max z-height and enter that with the H prefix.

I won't get into how to flatten a bed or calibrate the dimensions because the forums are full of that stuff and calibration is a deep subject.

Most of the calibration tutorials describe a procedure like shadowphile just mentioned. And repetier has the endstop offsets in its EEPROM quicksettings.
You also have space enough to get a mechanical/ screw adjustable endstop that you can put on top of the carriage.
