Auto Bed Leveling issues
December 09, 2018 09:36PM
Dear Gentlemen,

I would like your help to see if we can solve the following issue. Here it goes:

I built a t-slot 3d printer using the Ultimaker type as a template. The bed goes down as it prints and when I home Z it goes to Z_max which is located at the bottom of the frame. Everything works as it should and I decided to implement the Auto Bed Leveling feature.

So far I was unable to make it work and that´s why I request your help. I am using Auto Bed Leveling Bilinear with only one point for the sake of initial calibration.

When homed to Z, Repetier shows 172mm in the Z_axis and the procedure I am trying to do is as follow:

- Issue a G29 Command. The Probe comes to the (0,0) coordinate, where a metal stand with 15mm height is sitting, and the bed starts to move up until the Capacitive Probe triggers. It repeats once again and then gives the value18.6mm. I can see that the bed is lower then 18.6mm but Repetier shows 20.2mm. The distance between the capacitive probe and the nozzle is 3.5mm (capacitive probe higher than nozzle) and the capcitive probe triggers around 7mm from the metal stand;

- I manually command the table to move to Z=0 and, once it reaches 0, I can measure 18.6mm from the nozzle to the table.

I have already entered 18.6mm as Z_offset but it did not solve the problem. I´ve also tried -18.6mm but that does not seem to work either. Basically, no matter the number I put as Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER I end up having 18.6mm between the nozzle and the bed.

I am using Marlin 1.1.9 and Repetier as Host. I´ve attached a Picture showing my current assembly and the code can be seen hereafter. I´ve removed parts of the code since they are no relevant.

// Enable this feature if all enabled endstop pins are interrupt-capable.
// This will remove the need to poll the interrupt pins, saving many CPU cycles.

 * Endstop Noise Filter
 * Enable this option if endstops falsely trigger due to noise.
 * NOTE: Enabling this feature means adds an error of +/-0.2mm, so homing
 * will end up at a slightly different position on each G28. This will also
 * reduce accuracy of some bed probes.
 * For mechanical switches, the better approach to reduce noise is to install
 * a 100 nanofarads ceramic capacitor in parallel with the switch, making it
 * essentially noise-proof without sacrificing accuracy.
 * This option also increases MCU load when endstops or the probe are enabled.
 * So this is not recommended. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
 * (This feature is not required for common micro-switches mounted on PCBs
 * based on the Makerbot design, since they already include the 100nF capacitor.)

//============================== Movement Settings ============================
// @section motion

 * Default Settings
 * These settings can be reset by M502
 * Note that if EEPROM is enabled, saved values will override these.

 * With this option each E stepper can have its own factors for the

 * S-Curve Acceleration
 * This option eliminates vibration during printing by fitting a Bézier
 * curve to move acceleration, producing much smoother direction changes.
 * See [github.com]

//============================= Z Probe Options =============================
// @section probes

// See [marlinfw.org]

 * Enable this option for a probe connected to the Z Min endstop pin.

 * Enable this option for a probe connected to any pin except Z-Min.
 * (By default Marlin assumes the Z-Max endstop pin.)
 * To use a custom Z Probe pin, set Z_MIN_PROBE_PIN below.
 *  - The simplest option is to use a free endstop connector.
 *  - Use 5V for powered (usually inductive) sensors.
 *  - RAMPS 1.3/1.4 boards may use the 5V, GND, and Aux4->D32 pin:
 *    - For simple switches connect...
 *      - normally-closed switches to GND and D32.
 *      - normally-open switches to 5V and D32.
 * WARNING: Setting the wrong pin may have unexpected and potentially
 * disastrous consequences. Use with caution and do your homework.

 * Probe Type
 * Allen Key Probes, Servo Probes, Z-Sled Probes, FIX_MOUNTED_PROBE, etc.
 * Activate one of these to use Auto Bed Leveling below.

 * The "Manual Probe" provides a means to do "Auto" Bed Leveling without a probe.
 * Use G29 repeatedly, adjusting the Z height at each point with movement commands
 * or (with LCD_BED_LEVELING) the LCD controller.
//#define MANUAL_PROBE_START_Z 0.2

 * A Fix-Mounted Probe either doesn't deploy or needs manual deployment.
 *   (e.g., an inductive probe or a nozzle-based probe-switch.)

 * Z Servo Probe, such as an endstop switch on a rotating arm.
//#define Z_PROBE_SERVO_NR 0   // Defaults to SERVO 0 connector.
//#define Z_SERVO_ANGLES {70,0}  // Z Servo Deploy and Stow angles

 * The BLTouch probe uses a Hall effect sensor and emulates a servo.
//#define BLTOUCH
  //#define BLTOUCH_DELAY 375   // (ms) Enable and increase if needed

 * Enable one or more of the following if probing seems unreliable.
 * Heaters and/or fans can be disabled during probing to minimize electrical
 * noise. A delay can also be added to allow noise and vibration to settle.
 * These options are most useful for the BLTouch probe, but may also improve
 * readings with inductive probes and piezo sensors.

 * Z probes require clearance when deploying, stowing, and moving between
 * probe points to avoid hitting the bed and other hardware.
 * Servo-mounted probes require extra space for the arm to rotate.
 * Inductive probes need space to keep from triggering early.

 * lower the bed). The values set here apply over and above any (negative)
 * probe Z Offset set with Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER, M851, or the LCD.
 * Only integer values >= 1 are valid here.
 * Example: `M851 Z-5` with a CLEARANCE of 4  =>  9mm from bed to nozzle.

 *   With an LCD controller the process is guided step-by-step.

 * Normally G28 leaves leveling disabled on completion. Enable
 * this option to have G28 restore the prior leveling state.

 * Enable detailed logging of G28, G29, M48, etc.
 * Turn on with the command 'M111 S32'.
 * NOTE: Requires a lot of PROGMEM!

  // Gradually reduce leveling correction until a set height is reached,
  // at which point movement will be level to the machine's XY plane.
  // The height can be set with M420 Z

  // For Cartesian machines, instead of dividing moves on mesh boundaries,
  // split up moves into short segments like a Delta. This follows the
  // contours of the bed more closely than edge-to-edge straight moves.
  #define LEVELED_SEGMENT_LENGTH 5.0 // (mm) Length of all segments (except the last one)

   * Enable the G26 Mesh Validation Pattern tool.

The Z offset value that is stored in the eeprom will over ride your updates in the config.h

You can use the built in eeprom editor in repetier host to update the z offset (marlin uses a negative value here, so -18.6)

or you can send the following comands to the printer to update the eeprom with the settings in config.h

M502 ;read config.h values
M500 ;store values to eeprom
Re: Auto Bed Leveling issues

Thanks Obewan,

The M502 and M500 were sent all the times.

First, M851 Z-18.6, then M500, then M502 and finally M501 to make sure the value used is the one sent with M851 command.

That did not solve the problem.

Let see if I have this correct you issue a G29, the Probe homes at 0,0 where a 15mm metal stand is sitting on the bed.
This will put you 15mm above the bed plus your Z Clearance of 20mm for Deploy/Stow. At this point you should be 35mm above the bed.

#define Z_CLEARANCE_DEPLOY_PROBE 20 // Z Clearance for Deploy/Stow

Unless you lower the Z-Axis to zero, Then you should be at 15mm above the bed or the height of the metal stand.
Plus the difference between Height of the capacitive probe around 7mm and the Nozzle 3.5mm.

#define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 0 // Z offset: -below [the nozzle]

Your Z-Probe offset should be set to -3.5mm, the distance between the Probe and the Nozzle.
This then places your Nozzle on the 15mm metal stand. With you current settings that in order to get to the bed you would have to drop 18.5mm

Am I understanding what you posted.

This is the order in which you preform the steps, "the M502 Restore to Factory" in the Middle is re-setting your new Z-Offset
First, M502 then M851 Z-18.6, then M500 finally M501 if you want to make sure the value used is the one sent with M851 command.

Hi Robert,

Not sure if
this is the order in which you preform the steps, M502 Restore to Factory in the Middle of your setting your new Z-Offset

this is a suggestion or this is what I did previously? Could you clarify?

Am I understanding what you posted.

I guess you are correct in your understanding. The problem is that I never get 18.5mm above the bed. I am always higher than that.


Re: Auto Bed Leveling issues

Hey Gentlemen,

Not sure if good news but at least something different.

With #define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 0 // Z offset: -below [the nozzle], sent a G29 command and waited for the result (only one point to speed up the process). Got 18.78mm. Added 3.5mm to this and sent M851 Z-22.28, M500 and then a M501 to make sure it was saved.

Moved the extruder to (100,100) and Z to 10. As it looked ok, started sending decreasing Z and got the nozzle exactly touching the bed.

Homed Z again and sent another G29. After probing, got the value -3.495mm. Sent the nozzle to (100,100) and lowered Z to 0. Now I get around 15mm from the nozzle to the bed.

Guess we are getting close but need some help in here.


Re: Auto Bed Leveling issues
December 10, 2018 05:53PM
Ok, got lost again.

After the issue with the value -3.495mm, I repeated everything again.

Set #define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 0 // Z offset: -below [the nozzle], sent a G29 command and waited for the result (only one point to speed up the process). Got 18.78mm. Added 3.5mm to this and sent M851 Z-22.28, M500 and then a M501 to make sure it was saved.

Moved the extruder to (100,100) and Z to 10. As it looked ok, started sending decreasing Z and got the nozzle exactly touching the bed.

Sent Z Home. Sent G29 again and now, everytime the probe is about to sense (I can see how close it is from the metal Stand) I get a Probe Fail.

Does it make any sense to you guys?

Hi Roberts,

The values you posted are my actual values.

Any suggestion?

Ok Guys,

Found the culprit. It was this line
 #define Z_PROBE_LOW_POINT          -10 // Farthest distance below the trigger-point to go before stopping.
When the errors were occurring I had the value set to zero (0). I changed to -10mm and now I can calibrate all points.

Doing my first test now and the bed went correctly to 0.33mm, which was my first layer height.

Thank you all for the help you provided.
