Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

Weird. Bltouch documentation lists that. Check with makergear support, maybe it’s something custom It's working as intended. Makergear support says they decided to change G28 so it does an auto-level each time. I wish they hadn't, seems like it should be an option, or that people could just update ...

Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

Can you run an M503 command and report what the current value is for M206 and M851?

Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

G28 actually does home. G29 is what does auto leveling. Nope. Not on my printer. "G28 Z" will "home" the bed by probing the center position only. "G28" with no arguments homes X & Y, then probes at least 6 points. I've done this several times. Perhaps it's a bug but that's what it does right now. W...

Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

Correction: The Y offset is 10 mm (or maybe 11?). And the maximum Y position is now 232 mm. Makergear Support says this is to keep the probe from hitting clips. The clips were replaced with shorter ones, but apparently this wasn't enough to keep the probe from hitting them. So we lose 22 mm in the Y...

Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

One side effect of the upgrade seems to be a shift in the Y axis of some 20 mm. Anyone else notice this? Also, G28 now does a multi-point probing of the entire bed, every time. I find this really annoying, it takes a long time, and I doubt the bed is going to go out of level all that quickly. I can ...

Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

I was able to install the plugin (thanks everyone!) and then do the upgrade. During the first pass at calibration that was part of the upgrade process I got a timeout, but I was able to proceed with the bed leveling by rebooting Octopi and then going back to the Maintenance page. It is *really* fun ...

M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

Has anyone else attempted the probe upgrade install on an M3 ID? I got thru all the hardware changes no problem. Then the instructions say to go to open up Octoprint and select the Makergear Maintenance tab, then click on Printer Upgrades... except there is no Printer Upgrades button on the Makergea...

Re: M3-ID Rev. 1

I am also very interested in upgrading my M3-ID to add the touch probe. Has anyone done this using the BL Touch?

Octoprint damaged - how do I re-install?

I have an M3ID which came with Octoprint installed on a Raspberry Pi. The Octoprint s/w has become damaged, it no longer functions correctly. Apparently this sometimes happens if an update gets corrupted somehow. I can no longer run the MakerGear Setup, it just hangs with "Loading", and I cannot ena...

Re: MAKERGEAR M3-ID reviews

I've had an M3 ID for about a week or so now. one of the biggest improvements I see over the M2 (which I had previously) is the cooling fans. For one thing, I find that supports remove much more cleanly. Compared to prints made with the M2 of the same objects, overhanging sections are much cleaner.
