    Hi everyone,

    we recently got a tool changer and I finished assembling the electronics. Now i need to install the reprap firmware and I am confused about

    1. the "TCH-Z-Endstop-Z Switch" wiring terminal and I can't figure it out where it goes. I am guessing It should go into the "Z Stop" slot next to the two fuses on the Duet board.
    Am I correct? The Z stop I got in the package is a simple switch type stop with on or off functionality, and It goes on the head on the XY gantry.

    2. I have not got any other sensors like inductive probes etc in the package. So I don't have any probes on the machine now. But the Duet Web Control Shows "Z Probe" with a value of 1000 and gives me an error "Z probe triggered at the start of probe moving".
    So I realized I must be running a wrong firmware and got to this website"https://configtool.reprapfirmware.org/"
    Can anyone help me go through the numerous options in that page.

    This does indeed go to the Z-Stop input. You can see this in the following picture: (Follow the braided bundle going down the middle, which then changes to a white twisted pair that connects just under the fan connector.)

    The Z probe is configured as P7, which means that the Z endstop is used:
    Sadly it looks like all of the probe setup is deprecated, including the X, Y and Z parameters of the same line.

    Here's the Duet3D firmware update page:

    It looks like v3 has only just come out so the configs are likely incorrect for that version.

    Okay. now the z stop connection issue is sorted.

    But I still cannot find out how to proceed further from this point. What options should I choose from "https://configtool.reprapfirmware.org/" inorder to get my tool changer working
