Anet A8 - Marlin Autolevel Issues - Probe offset

Post by NXSmiggy » Tue Oct 16, 2018 5:22 pm

Hi All, Newbie here looking for some advice.

Using the TRONYX XY-08N sensor on my A8 with Marlin and trying to get auto leveling to work, and it does somewhat but I cant get the probe offset to work. Using the guide on 3dprint.wiki it states to use the following code

Code: Select all

#define LEFT_PROBE_BED_POSITION   20
#define RIGHT_PROBE_BED_POSITION  160
#define BACK_PROBE_BED_POSITION   160
#define FRONT_PROBE_BED_POSITION  20
However when trying to compile the Arduino IDE gives an error of Front probe position must be less than back probe position. It also does this with the other option of

Code: Select all

#define LEFT_PROBE_BED_POSITION   35
#define RIGHT_PROBE_BED_POSITION  200
#define BACK_PROBE_BED_POSITION   180
#define FRONT_PROBE_BED_POSITION  20
Printer is working fine without this, and the auto leveling works after using safe home but is only sensing 6 of the 9 points due to the probe being off the front of the bed for the first 3 spots.

Any ideas on what i'm doing wrong?
