autoleveling?

No. Autoleveling is overrated (it doesn't work well in other products). Once you level it will stay level for months.

However I still tweak mine a bit - sometimes you want something to stick extra well and I adjust it (simply turn the 3 screws the same amount a 1/4 turn) such that the bottom layer is squished a little more - this way the part will stick very well.

Other times I'm printing something small that doesn't need to stick well but where the bottom layer is critical dimensionally. And I don't want to have to file the tiny tiny bottom layer lip off the bottom edge. So I turn the screws the other way.

Autoleveling takes this control away from you - moves you farther from controlling the printer and gives you fewer options.
