I’m trying to get G38.2 to work. I started with the firmware from the firmware page and made a couple of changes to the Configuration.h and Configuration_adv.h files and then flashed the firmware. The commands now trigger an action. However, the axis doesn’t stop when the touch plate is hit. It appears to be a known bug in the 1.1.0-1 firmware (I think that is the version from the firmware page). It has been fixed with firmware after 1.1.0-RC8 .
The way I see it I have four options:
1 . Jump to the latest firmware from the Marlin page and try to change the settings in Configuration.h and _adv.h to match those from the V1 firmware page.
Use the latest firmware from the Allted/Marlin github page and make the probe changes to those configuration.h files
Use 1.1.0 RC8 with a new endstops.cpp file (like is mentioned here https://www.v1engineering.com/forum/topic/touch-plate-with-g38-codes/)
Bag it and move on with my project.
Any advice? I’m leaning towards option 2. Has anyone used G38 since P3DCNC’s post March 2017?
