    That's is really awesome dude :)
    Are you using Marlin? And what app is running on that tablet?

    Yep it's currently using Marlin, I've got a possibly faulty RADDS board I'm going to test but I might be running 32bit firmware soon.

    The printer is running Octoprint so the table, is showing the web interface, via the browser. I have the touchUI plugin installed on Octoprint to make it more useable.

    I've never tried Octoprint, is it easy to setup with the D-Bot? I see you have a BLtouch :) I could never get mine working :(

    Yeah octoprint is just a host software so, set up is basically telling it the build volume, number of extruders, heated bed etc and that's it.

    The 3D touch (BLTouch clone) was just a matter of configuring the firmware (defining a few things really) and it just worked. What was up with your's? You sold your D-Bot right?

    My D-Bot is in the shed :)
    I think I had my BLtouch to high. I may get it out and try again and put it in a full case.
    I'm glad yours worked out great :)

    Check out the final video in my D-bot coreXY 3d printer build, in this video I look at the firmware on my print and also take a look at the 3dtouch sensor.
