MBL uses the mesh to compensate for variations in height across the bed.
G28 disables bed leveling. Marlin 2. Manually modify a single point with X Y Z parameters. See also M Marlin 1. Related codes: M M Use G29 S1 to move to the first point for Z adjustment. Adjust Z so a piece of paper can just pass under the nozzle. Use G29 S2 to save the Z value and move to the next point. Repeat steps until completed. Wait for Homing XYZ to complete. When Click to Begin appears, press the controller button to move to the first point.
Use the controller wheel to adjust Z so that a piece of paper can just pass under the nozzle. Press the controller button to save the Z value and move to the next point. S1 : Start probing mesh points.
S2 : Probe the next mesh point. S3 : Manually modify a single point with X Y Z parameters. S4 : Set a global Z offset. Positive values are away from the bed; negative values are closer. S5 : Reset and disable mesh. S0 : Produce a mesh report see examples below.

Sain Smart / Creality3d Ender 3 Firmware Update on v1.1.4 Board
Tried printing with usb and through octopi, but it seems to be FW settings that has changed as i'm using the same old slicing settings in cura 4. This is something that needs to be taken up with the creators of TH3D - they are the ones that are providing the configuration files. You can try using vanilla Marlin with the included Ender 3 configuration file and see if that gives better results. This is not a problem for this bug tracker. The ender 3 firmware configuration of Marlin has reduced homing speeds, that is probably the difference you are noticing.
We should probably make this change to all Creality printers, as they all share the same hardware. We have since changed the homing speeds on all Creality models in our example database. The other differences you are seeing are questions for the TH3D developers. This issue has been automatically locked since there has not been any recent activity after it was closed.

TH3d For Ender3 and Ender3 Pro
I got myself the Ender 3. The Home position is about 1mm left and 2mm in front of the front left corner. Now, the hotend center axis is 11mm from the carrier plate with the "Mk 10" cooler mounted right onto a pair of 5mm pegs that are part of the plate. As I want to change to an e3D v6, which has a diameter of 22mm, I will have to move out some distance ca. This means, that any Y command will be off by this distance.
How do I reconfigure the Home position to have an offset to the 0-positions gained from the limit switches? According to Repetier Host it runs on Marlin 1. Creality offers the firmware on their website as a. When homing the printer, the hot end carriage will be instructed to hit the mechanical or optical end stops.
From this point a well configured firmware knows where to find the origin of the heat bed.
For the printer to know the origin of the bed, offsets are defined in the firmware from the end stop locations to the actual origin of the heat bed. When you change the hardware e. Note that any arbitrary point on the heat bed can be used to re-calibrate this. I have a x mm heat bed that actually measures x mm.
Printing a large square on the heat bed will therefore give you a good impression of the offset of the nozzle due to your new carriage design. Note that, if you cannot or will not flash new firmware, an alternative solution exists to set new incremental offset values using the M command IF your current firmware supports this.
A detailed description to re-calibrate is found in answer How to center my prints on the build platform? From this post :. If you see it in eeprom editor just change them. If it is repetier-firmware based it will store changes in eeprom on pressing "ok".
This post from retrieval of existing settings An example of the resulting file is shown in the question, Help with Repetier firmware variables Dimension Dual Delta - J Group Roboticsa sample of which I have included below:. However, you would appear to have to be running Repetier firmware for these two solutions to work, and not Marlin but I may be wrong. Greenonline also wrote about this in his blog. Variant 1 would be to use the pre-supplied.
Variant 2 means writing the settings yourself or using Repetier firmware to write the files for you. In the case of the Ender 3, the chip used sadly disqualified Repetier firmware, so writing it yourself is the only option.
To write the firmware yourself or using Repetier firmware, you need the old settings. To get these, connect the printer via USB, connect it with a software like Repetier host and send M to get all the settings. Now, either hack those into Repetier firmware or use a blank Marlin. In the later case, you need to put the folder Marlin-?.?. Now open the Marlin.
Set up the new firmware with these base settings or adjust as needed. Now that we have our Configuration files in the end we pretty much skipped step 1 and grabbed a fitting German! As an alternative English! So, let's open your Marlin. In the configurations we grabbed the sketch file Configuration.
