Global warming. Climate change. Paris Climate Accord. And your lying eyes?
Some of my friends call me anti-science because I'm convinced the entire global warming/climate change/whatever movement is a massive hoax. Maybe I should call them anti-math? Nah, calling my friends names accomplishes nothing. Take a look at the simple gra...

Got my replacement BLTouch in and installed it (correctly this time). All the gcodes work.

It's installed on an Azteeg X5 Mini v3, and I'll be happy to create and post a proper wiring diagram. This is of course running Smoothieware.

Whether I extend the pin (via M280 S3.0) or not before trying any sort of auto-calibration routine, the result is the same: The effector crashes into the bed. I've tried G29, G30, and G32. I've tried them without manually extending the pin, and after manually extending the pin. Always the same result.

Any ideas? I'm posting the relevant portion of my config file below. Thanks!

--------------
probe endstop true
probe_pin 1.29 # optional pin for probe

# optional Z probe http://smoothieware.org/zprobe
zprobe.enable true # set to true to enable a zprobe
zprobe.probe_pin 1.29 # pin probe is attached to if NC remove the !
zprobe.slow_feedrate 5 # mm/sec probe feed rate
#zprobe.debounce_count 100 # set if noisy
zprobe.fast_feedrate 100 # move feedrate
zprobe.probe_height 5 # how much above bed to start probe

# Switch module for Z probe servo control
switch.servo.enable true #
switch.servo.input_on_command M280 S3.0 # M280 S7.5 would be midway
switch.servo.input_off_command M281 # same as M280 S0 0% duty cycle, effectively off
switch.servo.output_pin 2.4 # must be a PWM capable pin
switch.servo.output_type hwpwm # H/W pwm output settable with S parameter in the input_on_comand
switch.servo.pwm_period_ms 20 # set period to 20ms (50Hz) default is 50Hz

# associated with zprobe the leveling strategy to use
leveling-strategy.delta-calibration.enable true # basic delta calibration
leveling-strategy.delta-calibration.radius 200 # the probe radius
leveling-strategy.delta-calibration.initial_height 10 # height above bed to stop initial move

I wired my BLTouch as shown below to my Azteeg X5 Mini v3 board. I set the switch.servo.output_pin in my config file to 1.22. As soon as I switched on the printer, the BLTouch caught fire.
