Configuring the BLTouch on a Hictop 3DP-18

I had a bit of trouble getting the BLTouch to work on my Hictop 3D printer, so I thought I’d share a few notes on how to get the gizmo to chooch on that acrylic-framed plastic melter.

Long story short, I finally got it to work by setting the MOTHERBOARD variable in my Configuration.h file to BOARD_RAMPS_14_EFB.  It was previously set to be a Ramps 1.3 EFB.

My printer uses an MPX .3 board, and it uses pin 11 for the servo.  So the config line is:
#define SERVO0_PIN 11

Other than that, I just used the instructions on ANTCLAB’s page.

I’m using this mount from Thingiverse.

    Any chance of you sending me your config.h file ? I am having issues getting mine to compile.

    Sure, I can email it or whatever.
