    I am unable to link anything, unfortunately. But the thread that got me started here was labeled Marlin 1.1.9 Release for Robo R1+.

    Well, I accidentally lost everything I just typed out because I wasn't thinking and copied something else. Please let me know If I should start a new thread for this issue or not before I type this all out again lol. Thanks so much!

    Thanks for the reply buddy! I just wanted bradf80 too hear my experience with his firmware. Should I just like this this forum as a reference or something?

    Just to clarify, The firmware did not work for me as I had hoped and I had issues with it. It fixed my z-offsets not being recognized but it made my extruder slam into my print bed after canceling prints. It may have been something I did but IDK.

    Check your slicer for he Gcode it will execute when you cancel.

    YAY HELP! :) thanks for the input guys!
    So it slammed down the extruder for a preloaded file in MatterControl 1.5 and a file I made it Cura. I open the code from the Cura file but I do not see anything that would tell the printer to lower the Z-axis. I do see this which is what I assume I was looking for
    "; cancel_gcode = G1 X10 Y200 Z20\n". both times this happened the z-axis was about 30MM high, and after I cancel it hesitates for second and increases speeds higher than the set F8000 in the gcode and just slammed the z-axis down. I can list what I did step by step if that would help.

    Not familiar with Cura so can't tell you where to look, but somewhere the host program will have a script it executes on a cancel. It should NOT really change the Z in that case, it should only HOME X and Y.

    G1 X0 Y0

    probably at most.

    This is what I have in Simlpify3d:



    Yep, nada. If I cancel it just stops. Not the greatest since I would then want to do a HOME to move the hot nozzle away

    So here is what happened, sorry for it being a little long. I am open to trying pretty much anything. Not sure if I did something wrong or what here.



    1. So I had the original firmware for the ROBO 3d r1+ (Had issues with it not recognizing z-offset)
    2. Followed a video tutorial for setting up/configuring Marlin 1.1.9 for the ROBO 3D R1+ (still had an issue with it not recognizing the z-offsets)

    3. After many days of searching, I found slider240sx’s post the resembled my issue and I read through the entire thread which brought me to this thread that bradf80 posted. I ended up downloading the .rar file that WheresWaldo reposted for him.

    4. I opened up the marlin file in the Arduino software and just flashed the config.h file.

    5. After it successfully uploaded, I started a test print from MatterControl 1.5 (I am pretty sure it slammed into the bed after I canceled it because it seemed to be stuck)

    6. I figured this was my fault because I think I should have flashed the Marlin file then the config.h file. So, I uploaded the marlin file that was provided in the Marlin 2.0 Bug Fix file, then re-uploaded the config.h file.

    7. After this, I just tried to control the printer with MatterControl 1.5. I tired homing it and it seemed to work ok. So I set my offset in the start G-Code within MatterControl and FINALLY it recognizes the z-axis offset set! YAY!

    8. Successfully printed the box the calibration box and circle no problem. ( did notice some buzzing sounds coming from the motors which I did see Bradf80 comment about in the config.h file. Thought this was reasonably ok for now)

    9. Tried to print something I sliced in Ultimaker Cura 4.1.0 and noticed when it started to print it wasn't accepting the start G-code in MatterControl. I copy and Pasted start G-code in printer settings in Cura.

    10. Viewing the layers of the file looks totally fine in Cura but in MatterControl it views the file as stretched/distorted and going through the print bed. I thought this may be the z-offset Extention I previously downloaded from the marketplace in Cura so I went ahead uninstalled it and re-added and reconfigured my printer in Cura.

    11. I just seemed to be having the printer to read the start G-code coming from Cura in general. Just to confirm it the printer would print files without issues using MatterControl and its preloaded files I started another print.

    12. I started to print the whistle in there and it read the start G-code then immediately finished the print and read end G-code.

    13. Thinking this may be a bad file I started to print the hair comb file and it was stuck so I canceled it which lead to the extruder once again increasing the speed and slamming down the z-axis into the bed, making the left switch bracket come off and stop while the right contact point reached the bottom of the rod leaving it slanted. See pictures here.

    OK, for starters ... lets pull Cura out of the picture and go back to using something else.
    MC is a fine alternative. See if it homes and does a small test print OK.

    Consider Cura gone. I am happy to start a new thread. This slamming into the bed issue has only happened on this Marlin Bug Fix 2.0 firmware. I have printed many things on both the original ROBO 3D firmware and Marlin 1.1.9. Both of these have worked fine besides them not recognizing the z-offset. I am a little scared to keep using this Bugfix version since I think it has bent one of the threaded rods a little and I will have to bend it back at some point.

    Made a new thread here BTW
