BLTouch Configuration on Makergear M2 with Rambo

edited September 2016 in Tips & Tricks
I made an account so I could share my configuration for the BLTouch using Repetier Firmware 0.92.9.


I used the configuration tool and here are the important settings:
Under Features:
Enable Z-Probing and Servo-Support
Z-Probe pin was Z_max_endstop for my printer
Probe height 8
Probe start script M340 P0 S700
Probe finished script M340 P0 S1500

Servo configuration:
Set Servo 0 to the correct pin (I used the Motor Extensions on my board)


Testing:
G31 should return HIGH.
M340 P0 S1200 puts the probe in parking position.
G31 should now return LOW.
M340 P0 S1500 puts the probe in parking position.

I only use G30 to manually measure the distance to the bed for easier manual calibration so I can't say anything about using G33 but everything should work fine after you tested with the code above.

    have you a Z min endstop switch ? It look's to be the problem if you dont have a regular Z-min endstop switch + the bl-touch...

    The way repetier choose and persit to digg to manage autoleveling is just... shitty !!!
    Sometimes, what make you noble, is to recognize a mistake, the way marlin choose to do autoleveling using the same Z-min pin is definitly the best one :(

    I brought the repetier server, but I cant use repetier firmware any more because of my Bl-touch...

    I totally agree. Repetier has too much problems with bltouch. Marlin works. Repetier does not. period.
