Before the question, here is my setup;
- Prusa i3 (with mainboard Mks Gen v1.2)
- Repetier as slicer
- Marlin source code
My main task is to convert my 3D printer into a chocolate printer. I have replaced the filament extruder with a chocolate extruder. And it is there that my issue began. Because, the new extruder is stopping slightly off the y-axis when homing. It is going out of the standard 20x20 cm bed. The other X and Z axes are OK.
So, I have played with the
#defines explained below, but I couldn't even make any single mm difference by homing. They are all ignored when the printer is homing. It goes and rests on the hardware end-stops and stops there eventually.
All I want 10 mm offset for Y axis.
Started with this;
// Travel limits after homing #define X_MAX_POS 200 #define X_MIN_POS 0 #define Y_MAX_POS 190 <<<< (tested with 190 and 210) #define Y_MIN_POS 0 #define Z_MAX_POS 200 #define Z_MIN_POS 0
// The position of the homing switches #define MANUAL_HOME_POSITIONS // If defined, MANUAL_*_HOME_POS below will be used //Manual homing switch locations: // For deltabots this means top and center of the cartesian print volume. #define MANUAL_X_HOME_POS 0 #define MANUAL_Y_HOME_POS 10 <<< (tested with 10 or -10) #define MANUAL_Z_HOME_POS 0
I have also played with the slicer tool (Repetier) settings where homing related values are mentioned but no joy there as well.
Any input highly appreciated.
