I installed a knockoff BLTouch called the 3DTouch on my Sidewinder X1. The sensor triggers correctly, however, the printer responds to the signal way too late.
For example, I was testing it and decided to trigger it with my finger to see if it was responding at all. After the trigger the printer continued downwards for another 3-4 inches, this would put the head below the bed if I let the bed trigger it. The printer just seems to get the message way too late.
Has anyone encountered an issue like this before, part of me thinks it's a calibration issue but honestly it is so far off that I am not sure.
I think it is firmware but I followed this tutorial, Touch Mi vs BLtouch on the Artillery3D X1 + MKS TFT babystepping, specifically for the sidewinder X1 to a T so I don't know what I am missing.
The head is stopping once triggered, it's just stopping too late. If I trigger it while it is up high when it goes down a couple of inches and then starts the rest of the self-level procedure.
