Does anyone have the offsets for this mount?

Sry forgot to add it to the description:

define X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 0 // X offset: -left +right [of the nozzle]
define Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -45 // Y offset: -front +behind [the nozzle]
define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -0.58 // Z offset: -below +above [the nozzle] -1

I have a problem:
When I do G28 It homes to the most left-front position, which is not above the heatbed.
There it tries to probe, which doesn't work because the sensor is also not above the heatbed.

How have you configured this?

I configured it similar to this:

you have to enable the safe auto home. Uncomment the line:


then it will home in the middle of your heatbed

Thank you.

Now this works. But I noticed that my BL-Touch-Clone (3DTouch) has a very bad tollerance.
I get values of the same point, which differ by +/-0.2

This is way too much...

Seems like your comment was autotagged :/ I also did not get the Sensor from geetech. Got it from http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/biynuBM

I basically have the screw almost at the very top

My clone works perfectly, did you change the offset? And the screw in the middle of the bltouch?

Yes, I did it like stated in the thing I posted:
"Lose the screw until the light went off, then fasten the screw until it is lit again."

But I didn't bought it from the official geetech-store. I got it from here:

Maybe this is a clone of the Geetech clone :-)
