Would you like to see MESH enabled for the R2/C2?

    The R2 doesn't use the nozzle as the probe so the probe is offset, home is actually higher than the nozzle by 4 - 6 mm that is why you need to tell the machine than home is not where it thinks it is with M206.

    New stuff, Marlin release version 1.1.6.
    Source files for those that want to poke around.
    .hex file flashable directly from the OctoPrint Settings screen. The compiled binary was created with the Arduino IDE version 1.8.5, no other version was tested.
    Release notes are located here: https://github.com/MarlinFirmware/Marlin/releases

    Okay after a bunch of testing and hating the way the default firmware works, I reworked this version. It again homes at the top of the build volume. It uses a 5 x 5 MESH that only needs to be done one time. All subsequent G29 (leveling) commands only display the MESH status, greatly speeding up the printing process. This leveling and the UBL found in the other thread are far superior to the leveling used in the default Robo firmware.
