Capacitive endstop
August 07, 2017 12:12PM
I have several leapfrog creatr single extruder 3D printers, the controller boards it comes with don't last to long.
I've just replaced the board with a new Biqu MKS Base V1.5, im using marlin firmware 1x1, Adruino 8.1.
Everything works fine except the Z Capacitive endstop.
I'm having trouble applying it to the marlin firmware, it doesn't recognizes the Z Capacitive endstop. When the build plate goes up the Capacitive end stop turns on and I hear a click when it makes contact put the build plate just keeps going up, it doesn't stop.
I need help on how to write a code to marlin firmware to recognize the Capacitive endstop.

I tried installing a mechanical Z endstop but when the built plate goes up it turns off the firmware when it makes contact with the bed.

How can I make a mechanical endstop work on a Z access or how can I make a Capacitive endstop work on a Z access using marlin firmware.

Help is greatly appreciated.
