Heavy hack: bed autoleveling and tool height detection (ultimaker original -- full bed replacement)

Recommended Posts

Wow, my last post here probably dates back to years...!

Some of you may be interested in the last major modification I did to my quite old ultimaker: ditching the old wooden bed, using three Z screws so that the bed is held by three points (no more vibrations), and the benefit of having both automatic bed leveling and tool height detection. This way I can change my hot end and have the printer deal with it!

Looks like it is working well enough so far, even though I can probably get some more precision with slower home seeks. But it may give ideas to others :)

It solves a few of my two year old wishes  :)
