Now I have two Hictops one 12volt and One 24volt.
They have the same controller card they were both upgraded to Marlin 1.1.4-RC6 - they both have different problems.
The only firmware lines that are different are as follows.

#define CUSTOM_MACHINE_NAME " HicRed 1.1.4 "
#define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT { 80, 80, 1600, 94.4962144 }

#define CUSTOM_MACHINE_NAME " HicBlue 1.1.4 "
#define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT { 80, 80, 400, 94.4962144 }

Both have a problem that after It Auto homes while displaying " HicBlue 1.1.4 " Z-axis will rise changing the display to " Endstops Z " or "G28 Z Forbidden"

#define Z_CLEARANCE_DEPLOY_PROBE 10 // Z Clearance " this is why Z-axis rises by design " to give be room for clearing the leaking filament.

Attached is the Configuration.h

Attached is Configuration_adv.h

They both print all functions seems to operate correctly
Both get a CRC when when using M500 using 461 bytes."do not know if 'CRC' was an added feature", only using 53% EEProm.

I have Changed Bed leveling from Linear to Bi-linear saving 6812bytes still CRC error but different number "-118."
Still " Endstops Z " on display.

Have dropped the Memory use below 50% Still CRC on M500.
Must be something to do with Endstop Z coding will look again!!!!!!!

I have determined the Exact line causing the Problem.


I am using the above line with a PNP Proximity Sensor in place of the Z end-stop

switch, along with the following lines

#define Z_CLEARANCE_DEPLOY_PROBE 10 // Z Clearance for Deploy/Stow
#define Z_CLEARANCE_BETWEEN_PROBES 2 // Z Clearance between probe points

This allows me to home then raise Z-Axis 10mm for a clearance of 10.5mm " #define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -0.5 "
When I auto Home I get her errors " Endstops Z " or "G28 Z Forbidden "

Now when I use this line


I get no errors, though I can not get the Z-Axis to Raise.

If I include the configuration.h file someone can see if a mistake is there.
