Can Cura do software bed leveling (software controlled no-sensor bed leveling grids)?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can Cura do software bed leveling (software controlled no-sensor bed leveling grids)?

Right now I'm stuck using MatterControl, because I don't have a printer with bed level sensors, and MatterControl offers "software bed leveling" - where I choose a pattern (grid or 7-point disk), then it walks me through each point, I manually control  the printer head using up/down buttons in the app (move up, move down, ok now do it in more refined steps), and it saves a software mesh that represents the warps in my bed.  Then when I print, it adjusts the G-code to have a good first layer.  It is actually a really nice solution!


Is there anything like that for Cura?  I've seen plenty of solutions where it says "I've moved to the first of four points, please raise/lower your bed through turning the screws", but nothing where you raise/lower the print head through the software and it "deals with it".


Printer: Rostock Max V2, a delta with VERY difficult to adjust bed leveling screws (because I built it wrong), and even if I was able to adjust the screws, I've still got a slightly warped build plate.
