    Hi

    It does not normally retain the auto bed level information after a power cycle. Even if it did, any bump or bash to the printer might muck things up. Better to level it each time. If your print...

    Hi

    More or less on the BL Touch, you need to:

    1) Remove the Z limit switch
    2) Verify that the BL Touch fires up (light blinks) and works (light switches on when probe is pushed).
    3) Design...

    The type of bed leveling done is very dependent on the Marlin version you are using. The thing that the better stuff does is to allow for multiple lumps and bumps in the bed. The earlier stuff simply...

    Hi

    When you get it running properly, probe based mesh bed leveling is much better than any form of manual leveling. It also has the advantage that it auto corrects for all the weird variation in...

    Hi

    Have you wired the printer for the BL touch (taken out the Z axis limit switch) or for the normal setup (no BL touch).

    If you are digging into customizing your own firmware, go for the...

    I have yet to see a rational set of instructions on setting up the probe on a bed leveling system. It is one of the most discussed and least understood parts of these systems. Compounding the...

    Hi

    If you go through all the info on the Deluxe package, they are pretty clear about buying the not-deluxe first and getting the deluxe only after the standard printer is up and running. Yes, I...

    I don't have the parts I did up anywhere at this point. You are the first to ask. They are buried somewhere on the computer ... I'll see if I can dig them up.

    Hi

    I would format it on a Windows 7 machine if you suspect that Win 10 might be an issue. I format them on OS-X and Linux. In any case you want to be sure that it is a FAT file system.

    What does Colin say about all this? That's not the "right" driver for the printer. That is the one that ships with the Deluxe upgrade kit.

    Hi

    When you use a shim to level the bed, the shim has a thickness. Let's say your paper is 1 mm thick. After bed level, the Z=0 point will be 1 mm off of the bed of the printer. If I tell a print...

    Hi

    The origin is set in the firmware. It can be in any corner of the printer or it can be in the center of the heated bed. The simple way to locate the limit switches on the Pegasus was to put...

    4000 is the correct number for the M5 rods. It hasn't changed in forever and ever on the M5 screws. The Acme rods do use a lower number so you might have loaded the "deluxe kit" firmware. Rather than...
