Auto bed leveling instructions
I am a newbie at this so please bear with me as I describe what I'm doing and how it's failing for me.
I have a 3d cartesian printer that has X, Y, and Dual Z motors. Resembles a Prusa to some degree. It's my design.
I have three endstops installed. One at the back of my printer bed which is the Y-axis, one on the X-axis on the left and
one on the top of my vertical towers for the Z-axis. They are connected to the Xmin, Ymin, and Zmin connectors on my
RAMPS 1.4 board. I also have an inductive proximity sensor that I have verified is working when I bring it near the bed
(MK3 Aluminum heat bed.) I have this sensor plugged into the Zmax connector.
I have configured the repetier firmware using the configuration application using this hardware setup.
Now, when I home the axis, they either slightly move or when they do move, they crash into the endstops and I have to
quickly power off the unit before any significant damage occurs. I'm using pronterface to do this.
I had the homing working quite well using marlin, but since I ran into issues with the probe setup I figured I would try
repetier after looking over the configurator.
Can you help me understand best practices in regards to how the switches (optical endstops) should be configured and in addition
the auto bed leveling using the ZMax pin (inductive probe)?
Thanks in advance for any insight you might provide with this issue.
