A simple mount for BLTouch (Smart) for the stock CR-10 setup. I've reclaimed pin 31 from the SD card to use for servo control.

Short video made to configure marlin 1.1.8 on CR10S


Attention if you want to use this change and keep the original switch z do not connect the WHITE AND BLACK cables


where is the configuration in marlin for a home Z in the middle of the bed

thank you

Look for z_safe_home.

thank you very much I still have a problem heating errors happen at 52 ° of the bed

Hi all 3d printer !
Updated my CR-10S S5 to Bltouch and Keenovo Silicone Heater CR-10S S5.
Thermal camera picture over Keenovo bed in zip file.
Bltouch, Wow, 0.001 ~ 0.05mm and works well with Ac bed.
In Bltouch CR-10S S5 Wiring, firmware mm.zip are everything you need if you want to try, except one Bltouch ;-)
Works very good.

In Marlin setup for bltouch, bedsize mm,zip
If you want to try !

Here are the most important changes in Marlin firmware Configuration.h you can do, needed for bltouch as well as set the size of your bed you have. There is much more to focus on but a good start that works, Bjax

I need massive assistance with this. All is installed and flashed and working... however my offset is off and no matter what I do to measure and set it correctly it just will not set for the middle of the bed. You have yours as 1.25 and I am curious how you got that number. I am at the point of exactly .1 of an offset and it prints decent. I have tried a few different numbers for the offset and some work and some don't, my issue arises when run a bed leveling... the middle is always pushing down in the middle of the bed and the outer edge is damn near perfect. What am I missing and perhaps what could I change? Thanks in advance.

Some values are saved in your printer's eeprom and are not changed when you flash a new firmware. You must reset your eprom if you change offset in configuration.h

Check this Z offset link.

On your LCD display under control, motion, you can set your Z offset as calculated via the linked movie. Remember to save the change. It is also very easy to increase or decrease if necessary.

May be difficult from the beginning to get good value and for me I had to have 6 clamps on the glass bed, if I have 4 st center too low.

Hope this helped a bit, Bjax

Thanks guys! Got mine going yesterday and it made a hell of a difference.

Glad to hear, I have just installed an E3D Aero to improve even more. Recommended! It's starting to be a really good printer.

Thanks Bjax. This is great information. I'm going to give it a try this weekend!

Thanks !
To me it works really well.
If you encounter problems, maybe I can help.
Good luck !

did you design this is f360? if so can you post the fusion file so i can modify this to work with a fang? Thanks!

Nope. It was done in Blender (and not very well, I might add)

Thanks for the post, would you have your offsets for this mount for marlin? I'm printing this currently and would like to have a starting point for tuning.

It depends mostly how you set it up (with or without the springs, etc.). You can probably start with 0.0 mm or -1.0 mm offset and work from there.

Can you point me to any instructions on how to configure the firmware and where to connect it?

BLTouch on the stock board is not easy to do. Setting up the firmware just requires enabling BLTouch and setting the right pin. If you want to see how to use Pin 31 (removes SD card) you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioL-7oEBI1Q&t=778s
