Vous avez toujours ce problème et ça l'a toujours fait ? le firmware (grbl 1.1 ou 0.9) est il adapté pour version de UGS ?
Postez en txt votre config de grbl...
Hello Ray !
I am happy to know that your problems are solved with CANDLE and the probe function.
I have the 1.0.11 CANDLE version, I'm going to try your version (1.1.7) with grbl v1.1 next week.
Since I'm doing tests PCB with CANDLE probe and FlatCam, i have (for the moment) 0% of fail XD, this machine is really perfect for that !!
i've allway this imperfection (wave effect <0.1mm) on Y axis, but not very annoying for my future projects.
I disassembled and remade all the tray Y, I reduced (a little) the wave effect and I almost removed the inclination of the tray.
I think, i going to open a new topic for this, but it's not really annoying....
When i probe the surface on my PCB, the values range from 0.00 to 0.4 mm (my CNC support leans a little... )
1 : Place the drill at start (manual)
2 : Reset coordonate X and Y axis
3 : Probe the 0.00 surface (in control menu)
4 : Reset Z position
5 : Load your .OBJ pcb
6 : "create heightmap"
7 : Configure and launch....
I will post a "map probe " picture from Candle... (i found this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tK5Amg-Ye58)
I have a little problem with Y or X axis (backlash ?), i have a little deformation, look on my PCB picture, the horizontals trace look are like wave...
For the ground return line... i forgot to do it ^^
finally, i use probe Z grid with Candle (work only with grbl 0.9) and it's very fine !!
For my PCB project : Proteus + FlatCam + Candle with probe Z (one square by cm² for grid)
Tool : the original drill engraving shipped with your eleksmill
Proteus config PCB:
trace style T15
Cut Z : -0.06
Feed rate : 150
Candle area probe Z config :
One probe each per cm² and don't forget to apply on your project.obj !
Probe connect on Mana Controller :
Ov and PR pin (GRBL $6 = 0.)
PCB Result :
I try surface probe on Candle and it work more better than OpenCNCpilot (on OpenCNCpilot, it's bugged for me) !
I made a test on PCB with a small circuit and the result it fine, i engraving with depth (z) 0.05mm, i think would i have more better result at 0.04 (my PCB copper thickness is 35µm (0.035mm)).
I do my first test with probe Z function, and work !
With a very low-cost PCB ^^
Just switch drill an PCB with 0v and PR pin...
GRBL $6 = 0.
But, i have a trouble message on OpenCNCpilot console, maybe it's normal... i don't know.. next : engraving test !
Have a good day
I found port description for mana controller : https://www.banggood.com/fr/3-Axis-Stepper-Motor-Driver-Board-Controller-Laser-board-For-DIY-Laser-Engraver-p-1015947.html?cur_warehouse=UK
this week i would try to examine this port and make a probe with a pull-up resistor (10k).
it is necessary to make quality PCBs.
Have a good day
