Tool Offset M218

Post by CCRN » Thu Aug 13, 2020 11:50 pm

Hello,

I am recalibrating my dual M2 and I am running into a problem. I can update the tool offset via gcode, but it does not persist. Is this something that can be written to the rambo and persist through power cycles, or is it intended for a starting script?

Thanks,
Jerold

It is in the firmware. What rev M2? I have an M2E Dual and my offset I think was 31.1mm when I looked at it.

Here's the source in Github

Thank you. My offset was off a bit after changing nozzles, say by 0.3 mm so there was a gap in my test prints. I thought there was a way to store the offset in the eeprom with gcode, but support said it is hard coded in the configuration.h file and to change it there or in the slicer.
