      Hey I just got a smoothieboard (an Azteeg x5 mini) and i’m having some issues getting it to home. It only seems to move slightly before stopping. I’ve combed through the config options and even added the scara_homing true option.

      I was wondering if somebody had a sample morgan config somewhere online or if I could get some help with the options needed to resolve this issue.

      Hi Blaze,

      Make sure you have the right pins configured at the endstops. There is a Azteeg config demo config. Start from that.

      Additionally make sure you add/superimpose the following to the config (Take care about the correct pins for Azteeg – this is from smoothieboard):

      # Arm solution configuration : SCARA robot. Translates mm positions into stepper positions
      arm_solution                                 morgan           # selects the morgan arm solution
      alpha_steps_per_mm                           553.54           # Steps per mm for alpha stepper
      beta_steps_per_mm                            553.54           # Steps per mm for beta stepper
      gamma_steps_per_mm                           417.32           # Steps per mm for gamma stepper
      arm1_length                                  150              # this is the length of an arm1 (inner) from hinge to hinge
      arm2_length                                  150              # this is the length of an arm2 (outer) from hinge to hinge
      morgan_offset_x                              190.0            # tower offset from bed 0:0 default 100.0
      morgan_offset_y                              -60.0            # tower offset from bed 0:0 default -65.0
      morgan_undefined_min                          0.95             # Defines undefined SCARA ratio: default 0.95
      scara_homing     true
      # optional SCARAcal (highly recommended for Morgan)
      scaracal.enable                              true
      scaracal.slow_feedrate                       20              # slow enough not to slip, fast enough not to frustrate the user

      and also the following for the probing:

      # optional Z probe
      zprobe.enable                                true           # set to true to enable a zprobe
      zprobe.probe_pin                             1.28!^          # 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 mm/sec
      zprobe.probe_height                          10               # how much above bed to start probe
      gamma_min_endstop                           nc              # normally 1.28. Change to nc to prevent conflict,
      # associated with zprobe the leveling strategy to use
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.enable         true          # enable map level
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.bed_x          380
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.bed_y          220
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.bed_z          200
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.slow_feedrate  100
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.probe_offsets  0,0,14.5      # the probe offsets from nozzle, must be x,y,z, default is no offset
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.wait_for_probe true          # Makes system wait for probe confirmation   
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.rows           7             # X divisions (Default 5)
      leveling-strategy.ZGrid-leveling.cols           5             # Y divisions (Default 5)
