Sadly the touchscreen does not support the M600 command which is the pause print and swap filament.

Hi, I had to disable the LED output as the pins seemed to cause a problem when they were live.  If you are running separate cables then you can enable the RGB Leds again at the very bottom of the configuration.h file.  You just need to uncomment the line and then recompile.

Have a look and if you're stuck let me know.

I would try and keep it in a similar position to the current one, just so you can keep the whole print bed size.. Although it all depends on where and how you are mounting the extruder.

Hi, just use any text editor and save the file with a .gcode rather than a .txt to a sd card.  Insert that SD card into your printer and choose to print that file.  It will run through the code and make the changes required.  Thats it :-)

The bedlevel speed is in the firmware, but the faster it is, the less accurate it is.  It only means waiting another 30 seconds for a far better print. 

You can exclude the G29 if you have done it once and not moved your machine.. if still printing at the same temp as it remembers the previous bed level

Not really, I edited a few files and numerous tweaks and changes.  Also, the new version of Marlin might not be any better.  The reason I say that is have a look in the changelog to see what they have altered, it might be they have just added something like DWIN touchscreen compatibility which wouldn't affect the X1 at all.

Hi, in the download section is a firmware I've done for the Genuis.  Artillery even prewired for the BLTouch so you only need to plug it into the pins at the side of the extruder.  You will still need to go inside to flash the mainboard and remove the glue they put on the touch screen ribbon cable so you can disconnect it for flashing but it's a lot easy to do than the X1 as you don't have to mess about swapping wires over.

Pretend Prusa Firmware / Re: What does the BLTouch Reset Really do?
« on: May 27, 2020, 02:50:30 AM »
Strangely enough I have to reset the probe every once and a while or on a new G28 it will go halfway down and then pretend it makes contact then stop. No clue how it gets confused but the reset concept is what had me put it into custom commands (octoprint) so I could tap it as a safety measure before a print. I dunno if its dumbos magic feather or not at this point but.. lol!

Well if it works :-) it's good enough,  handy to know also for others.   thanks for posting.

No that's correct.  It only shows open when the probe is down.  When the probe is retracted it shows triggers. :-)  It drops the probe always for homing, once homed it doesn't need it again and remains up.

Hi, in the 1.5 version it resets the BLTouch now when you first turn the machine on, it was a timing issue before this so the reset button is a bit redundant now. I've just not updated or removed it from the touchscreen firmware yet.

Pretend Prusa Firmware / Re: D9 MK2 400 factory issues
« on: May 26, 2020, 02:09:51 AM »
Some more experiments:

) I found out that there are some crazy acceleration moves on short distances and exaggerated corners since I updated to 2.0. Turned out junction deviation is the culprit, which I've reset to traditional jerk in the FW.
) This also comes in favor for linear advance (looks like these 2 features don't go well together) which I have enabled too now. Since this uses a bit more RAM I disabled SD-card support just to be on the safe side (using 73%).

So in case anybody wants exactly my settings for some reason, I've uploaded the current FW. Settings are:

* D9 MK2 400 factory
* linear advance enabled
* junction deviation disabled
* jerk enabled
* SD-support disabled
* filament runout detection disabled
* E-steps and speed for original bondtech (415 and 30mm/s)
* Max bed temperature is 130C now (I wouldn't use it that high though; seems the bed surface doesn't go beyond 90C anyways)
* slowed down Z speed a bit (it scares me when the extruder approaches the print bed on full speed)
* lower acceleration values for X/Y

Much appreciated many thanks for the feedback.  I will be releasing a new version soon.. just finishing it off :-)

You change this via code if you wish for now..  I think the easiest way is to write a gcode file and then print it.   So, to do this if you open notepad up and put the following in

G28 ;lets home first so you know its reading
M92 E415 ;sets the new esteps
M500 ;saves the esteps to eeprom
G0 Z50; brings the gantry up to 50mm so you know its finished.

Now.. if you save it as newsteps.gcode  and then copy it over to the SD card and print it.. that will be it :-) jobs done.

Let me know how you get on.  I will be adding a couple of buttons soon to the firmware so you will be able to swap between them in the future but this should get you going.

Hi there,
having a pretty warped bed on my X1, I decided to go for autobed levelling. Performing the guide went relatively smoothly and my printer calibrates itself before every print.
I am currently facing two problems though:
1) High vibration especially during the first layer, I retightened the part cooling fan since this is a part I removed, but it only helped a bit.
2) With higher speeds (positioning with ~150mm/s, printing with 50 mm/s) the axis don't move smoothly anymore. Could it be that the original board can't handle the calculations anymore, causing the movement to slow down? I own a V4 Sidewinder, 3.1 BLTouch and original Board.


Hi Martin,  150mm/s is really high and would cause problems with vibrations.  You could lower your jerk settings to see if that helps.  Are you using Cura to test?  This out of the box comes with really high settings due to it being made for the Ultimaker and it only having a lightweight head and non-moving bed.

I doubt the original board isn't up to it.. just try reducing your jerk, acceleration settings and see if that helps.

So I've spent all day trying to set up my BL touch on my V4, and it is just is refusing to work. I've rewired it more times than I can count, both through the Led mount and just bypassing that to write directly to the board. No matter what I do, I get the issue where when I try to home, it homes x and y, then moves up a little, extends the probe pin and retracts it 3 times before giving me the error telling me to fix my issues and use M999 to reset. The Z acid never drops at all during this. Also if I go into my Serial monitor and send M119, it always reports Z as triggered, and when I extend with a M280 P0 S10, sending M119 immediately retracts the pin and reports a triggered Z. I tried using the Teaching Tech's firmware, and that works if I plug my white and black wires into Z MIN, but I would prefer to be on Marlin 2.0.x instead of 1.1.19. I've attached a pictures of my wiring and a video of the triggered behavior as well.
Hopefully someone can help me, cause this has been incredibly frustrating! Thanks in advance!

So looking at your photos and description you are doing everything write. My firmware only uses the Z Max pin to make it easy to wire up but it's easy to change to Z Min if you want to do that? 

If you look in the following folder.. Experts only (Firmware source)\Marlin-2.0.x\Marlin\src\pins\ramps
Open pins_RAMPS.h file and look for...
  #ifndef Z_MIN_PIN
    #define Z_MIN_PIN      19
  #ifndef Z_MAX_PIN
    #define Z_MAX_PIN      18
and change the pin number around..
  #ifndef Z_MIN_PIN
    #define Z_MIN_PIN      18
  #ifndef Z_MAX_PIN
    #define Z_MAX_PIN      19

Then you can test to see if you have a problem with the Z Max pin since you have it working on the Z min.

If the axis is always moving up then no matter what the Z is always triggered. So, you will need to look at your white wire and make sure it's a good connection.

Let me know how you get on...  happy to try and work through this with you.

Hey Steve,

I upgraded to SKR 1.4 turbo now and all the guys are still using your guidelines to add Bl-Touch functionality for the X-1 :)
Pretty cool. Unfurtunately I got some problems with it now :( There are so many guys out that use 32 bit boards now with bl-touch and mine is doing problems :(

Could it just be that my sensors is just broken?

Take a look at my video if you got spare time pls. Take care of when the tip hit's the bed and when it just stops in the air and the LED won't light up red :(

Morning, yes that does look like a faulty BLTouch but double-check your connection is good first for the white sensor wire.   How are you finding that board otherwise?  worth the upgrade?
