Duet ans cartesian printer
December 04, 2016 06:38PM
Hi there,

I've just finished to build and commissioned my new cartesian printer(build from Voxel printer).
My Voxel printer is build with the following :
- DUET 0.6 with ReprapFirmware 1.16 (DC42 fork)
- PanelDue v1.1 with 5"" TFT and Firmware v1.15c
- IR sensor

In a Cartesian configuration, does the probe act as a end stop switch ? And how to define the z=0 ? Is it defined after G31 S-1 ?

Thank you for you help.

See [miscsolutions.wordpress.com]

It's set in config.g or a macro you call and it looks something like this:
G31 P500 X0 Y12 Z1.9

P is the trigger level
X & Y is the offset to the nozzle
Z is the z offset needed to put the nozzle at z0, since the ir sensor is above the nozzle.

You can use the Z probe to do the Z homing if you wish, or you can use a separate endstop switch. See [duet3d.com].
