4. Setup the X, Y, Z axis offset.

If the distance between the extruder and the platform is too close when printing, then reduce the Z-axis offset value, otherwise, increase it. Normally, we don't need to change the value of X probe offset from exand Y probe offset from extruder.

5. Set 3 (grid points) as bed leveling method

Adjust the Z-offset Value

Now everything is ready to start adjusting the Z-offset value of your Kingroon KP3S. You need to adjust the Z-offset on the above .txt file as well. 

Adjust the Z probe offset from extruder value down a little at a time to avoid your nozzle crashes into the heatbed and leads to any damages.  

In this firmware version, you could only adjust Z-offset value through the .txt file in the firmware. Do not support Z-offset adjusting on control screen.

@Misael
Which mainboard does your printer use?

Kingroon 3D Official - February 22, 2022

@Lukas
The 303 and 103 mainboards are used the same firmware, you could install the 3D-touch according to this tutorial directly.

@misael

same here on a GD32 F303 Mainboard.

i can recommend to try klipper / fluidd / super slicer. Works fine with bltouch. steep learning curve but absolutely worth it.

Hello Kingroon Team!

I just bought a KP3S – awesome little beast, I like it a lot! Congratulations to this machine!

I wired and installed a 3D-touch to the print head…

My mainboard is a GD32 F303 Mainboard. Can i flash the *.bin provided by your link on my mainboard or will I brick it? I am a little nervous, because you warned in an earlier tutorial to double check which mainboard-version to flash. In your bl-touch tutorial you do not specify for which mainboard version the *.bin is suitable.

Thanks in advance!

@Martin
Yes, you can, the related tutorial will come soon

Can i use GD32 F303 firmware with modified “robin_nano_cfg.txt” to get bltouch working?
