UM2 style homing

Posted · UM2 style homing

Hello,

I'm trying to build my own printer using a RAMbo board, everything works fine, but i want to do a ultimaker 2 style homing, meaning i want to use the lower endstop for the bed to home, and when the print starts letting the buildplate go up, i got the direction of the motor right, and it responds to the endstop on the bottom, but how do I get it to go up when the print starts?

I hope anyone can help me with this. if there really is no other solution i'll have to put the endstop on the top (which i really don't want).

Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure if i completely understand your intention, but if you're talking about the software part...

    In the Configuration.h of the Marlin firmware there are options for the direction of axes.

    For the UM2 it looks like this:

     

    
    

    #define INVERT_X_DIR true // for Mendel set to false, for Orca set to true

    #define INVERT_Y_DIR false // for Mendel set to true, for Orca set to false

    #define INVERT_Z_DIR true // for Mendel set to false, for Orca set to true

    #define INVERT_E0_DIR false // for direct drive extruder v9 set to true, for geared extruder set to false

    #define INVERT_E1_DIR true // for direct drive extruder v9 set to true, for geared extruder set to false

    #define INVERT_E2_DIR false // for direct drive extruder v9 set to true, for geared extruder set to false

    // ENDSTOP SETTINGS:

    // Sets direction of endstops when homing; 1=MAX, -1=MIN

    #define X_HOME_DIR -1

    #define Y_HOME_DIR 1

    #define Z_HOME_DIR 1

    So perhaps the "INVERT_Z_DIR" does the trick?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
