Z axis help
August 29, 2019 11:59AM
I am controlling a Tronxy X5SA with a Duet 2 WiFi and BLTouch. x and y are set forward with z and the extruder set to backward. all axis and the extruder respond correctly to direction/distance commands from the panel. z+ inputs result in the bed moving down or away from the print head.all axis including the z home correctly. When I print the z moves in the wrong direction. I checked the G code and the z is to move + or.2mm down each layer. Instead, the bed is moving into the print head. Any suggestions?

After homing all axes, does G1 Z0 leave the nozzle just touching the bed?

I suggest you ask for assistance at [forum.duet3d.com]. Attach your config.g and homing files to your post, and state which firmware version you are using.
