Calibration problems with auto home

Calibration problems with auto home
February 03, 2016 03:25PM
I hve built a Delta Rostock G2S Pro mini, however I stall very early into the calibration process as when I press auto home (or through repetier) only one motor moves up, when it hits the endstop a second motor moves up.

I cant get all three mtors to work together and it's very frustrating, I have swapped the wires and it makes no difference.

Can someone help?

It sounds like your electronics are trying to home like a normal cartesian printer. depending on your firmware you will probably need to set a variable somewhere to tell it it is a delta.
let us know what board and firmware you are running and someone can probably help.

Cheers,
Robin.

Thanks for the advice the board I am using is the GT2560, Firmware is rkmb_gt2560_g2s downloaded directly from the reprap wiki site.

Re: Calibration problems with auto home
February 05, 2016 10:46AM
Well I'm no Marlin expert but that looks reasonable to me, you have #define Delta in there so it should be using Delta homing.

First thing to check is that your homing sensors are behaving correctly, issue an M119 command and the printer should respond back with the state of all the end stops.
Manually trigger the switches, reissuing the M119 command each time and make sure that each switch shows triggered when triggered and untriggered when not.
Also make sure that each endstop corresponds to the correct tower.

If that all checks out then the only thing I can suggest is maybe commenting out the line :
#define Z_SAFE_HOMING // This feature is meant to avoid Z homing with probe outside the bed area.

As this sounds a bit like it might cause those problems .. but again, I'll stress I haven't used marlin for a few years and this feature wasn't in there when I was using it so don't take my word for anything!

Cheers,
Robin.

Thanks for your help, I started again with the config at the same time I rewired all the connections endstops and it now works, not sure which cured it but I am now happy to say the thing is up and running.
