Missing setting for auto bed levelling

Recommended Posts

Posted · Missing setting for auto bed levelling



I use auto bed levelling by calling G29 in my "start G code" and it works like a charm.

I have a 300 x 300 bed and I probe 6 x 6, in other word it is 36 times, that the Z axe will move over the same 

part of the lead screw, for every print I do, this will over time, mean wear and tear on that part of the lead screw,

after all it is just brass on stainless steel in most cases. 

My suggestion is that Cure create the G29 command so that only the area that is used for printing is probed.


To extra printer settings is needed:

Use Auto Bed Levelling 

Grid Size For Bed Levelling


G29 have a lot of extra parameters so I believe it's already possible.


Hope You will consider.


Thanks for a great slicer.

Best regards

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
