plugin for leveling Printrbot Simple metal on object location

Recommended Posts

I developed this plug in to to minimize the flatness error of the default bed for Printrbot Simple Metal 1403

the idea is to test the with the probe only the minimum rectangle around the printing area only instead of the hole bed

so the board will store the exact level of this job printing area

more over you can edit and force certain points of test by the probe instead of the automatic mode by changing Min. X, Min. Y, Max. X & Max. Y values. also you can change the center distance between the hot end and the probe and the retract z value.

installation:

1- copy the file to plugins folder (Example:C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_14.09\plugins)

2- very important: use ";" to disable G28 and G29 lines in the Start up code

so please test it and modify it if you want and tell me what you think

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
