Can‘t change Z-steps

Hi friends,

i will change the z steps in pronterface, but the board doesn‘t accept the command after M92 Z… -> M500 -> M503. 
After restart the mini, the z steps change automatically to z400.

I would be grateful, if anyone could help me. 

Thanks und advance

RE: Can‘t change Z-steps

You can't save values to EEPROM on mini. That is, after you execute M92 command, values will be in use only till power off or restart.

The only workaround is, you create some "initialization.gcode" file which contains your commands, save it to USB stick and "print" this file after turning printer on.

If I understood you correctly, then the content of such file would be like this:

M92 Zxxx ; My new Z-step value
M117 Z-step ready ; Display Message
M73 P100 R0 ; Finished

-use your own value for xxx.
