So I am trying to calibrate my My new delta printer but I am having problems with Z accuracy.
; do endstop and delta radius calibration G32 ; Home G28 ; move to 5mm above bed G0 Z5 ; then manually jog down until nozzle is on bed or just traps a sheet of thin paper ; sets the Z homing offset based on current position M306 Z0 G28 G0 Z1 ; check nozzle is 1mm above bed M500 ; saves the results in EEPROM equivalent
But when I do a G0 Z5 I am about 15-20mm off the bed instead of 5mm, then I jog down to the ben and perform M306 Z0 then G28 then G0 Z1 and then I am about 10mm.
Is there something I'm missing? Is there a step by step calibration guide that I could use? I have read through the docs and have not clear instructions on where to start.
I am using the smoothieboard
I also posted this on the smoothieware support google groups with a config file but I can not post links.
