Klicky Probe as Endstop with constant Z-Offset
- Automatically adjusts to any buildplate material and thickness
- You only need to calibrate one variable: Nozzle-to-switch offset distance, instead of Z-endstop pin and switch body and nozzle
- Easy to set up
- Your Z-offset will change when you swap nozzles (unless you swap in a nozzle with identical height to the old one). This is the only time you have to recalibrate your Z-offset!
- No automatic Z-offset possible.
How to set it up
- Replace the following lines:
variable_z_endstop_x: 1000 variable_z_endstop_y: 1000
variable_z_endstop_x: 0 variable_z_endstop_y: 0
#### Why change variable_z_endstop_ to 0 on both axis?
# if a separate Z endstop switch is in use, # specify the coordinates of the switch here (Voron). # Set to 0 to have the probe move to center of bed
- Open your printer.cfg
- Comment out or Replace in
- Comment out
- Set your probe offsets in
x_offset: 0 y_offset: 19.75 z_offset: 6.42
- Calibrate your z-offset the old fashioned paper way. Make sure to
SAVE TO PROBEand not
SAVE TO ENDSTOP!
- Enjoy :)
Important Notes & Tips
Always test your freshly-set-up Z-offset on the outer edges of your print surface. If anything goes wrong, you will only scratch the edge and not the middle.
What if I swap my nozzle?
If you install a nozzle that is longer than your old one, you need to decrease your
[probe] z_offset. If your new nozzle is shorter than the old one, you need to increase the
[probe] z_offset. If it´s the same length, you can just reuse the current value.
