Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

Yeah, I'm using Marlin 1.1.8 since it has more features and better options for bed leveling. Your switch looks like a limit switch (So it's probably not sending the correct signals.) and not a BLTouch and this might be the cause of your issues. You can see a true BLTouch in this thread. http://forum...

Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

It's trial and error. All printers will be different even ones of the same model. M851 will be your friend in figuring it out and you'll use the "Communication" tab in the "Machine Control Panel" in Simplify3D. You'll basically set an offset with M851 like: M851 Z-1.5 // These numbers are in MM and ...

Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

Sounds like it's doing what it's supposed to be doing. Can you capture a video and post it somewhere?

Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

They shouldn't be needed unless the one already installed in the BLTouch wears out. The spring is located in the sensor and it should already have one installed, I've yet had to replace any of my springs in any of my BLTouches.

Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

I believe they're replacements if your kit was like mine.

Re: Mini-Rambo "EINSY"

I used the main Marlin build and added in the information for the Einsy using bits from Prusa and the Ultimachine fork. It wasn't too hard over all and it took a little bit of time to do. I had to modify the following files in the main branch: Configuration_adv.h Configuration.h ultralcd_st7920_u8gl...

Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

I used and extension cable that broke the three cables out and I also had to change the servo pin (From 22 to 44) in the configuration files. (Failed to mention that in my over view. I'll update that post to avoid further confusion.) If you leave the three wires and plug the servo signal next to the...

Re: Mini-Rambo "EINSY"

I'm using the the NF-A4X10-FLX 5V for the extruder fan, and Gdstime 5 Volt 50x10mm 50mm for the part cooling fan currently. I've ordered a couple of blower style fans that I'll probably use for the part cooling as the 50x10 doesn't seem to provide enough airflow for PLA cooling. I did solve the garb...

Mini-Rambo "EINSY"

So I brought a "EINSY" board http://reprap.org/wiki/EinsyRambo (the one in the Prusa MK3) since I kinda wanted a Prusa but didn't want to buy a Prusa. I've spent some time with it on my M2E and so far I'm in love with it, I highly recommend this board! Here's my thoughts so far: Pluses: Quiet even i...

Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

A very high level on what I did to enable BLTouch a while back: I wired it up like this (per the CLabs page): https://plus.google.com/113792662927481823969/posts/RtWww5rCV3F If you wire it like this you have to change the: #define SERVO0_PIN 22 to #define SERVO0_PIN 44 in the pins_RAMBO.h. Alternati...
