Software Bed Levelling

Fri Nov 17, 2017 9:37 am

While there is a bed levelling wizard included with the software I find it pretty clunky and not very helpfull. What would be usefull would be a software levelling solution similar to that found in Mattercontrol. This helps print on a warped bed where it is impossible to manually level because the build platform isn't perfectly flat. When I first got a 3D printer I was unable to use it due to a badly warped build platform until I discovered the mattercontrol software levelling.

It is basically a simple mesh bed levelling which adjusts the gcode to take into account the discrepencies on the Z axis at the XY co-ordinates.

S3D beats Mattercontrol hands down in every area except this and I occasional have to go back to matter control if I need to print on the printer with the warped bed. This isn't very often but it is the only printer I can use for ABS printing at present as it has it's own enclosure.

I absolutely agree with this! I am using a Orion delta style printer from SeeMeCnc and without matter control software, there’s no way I would be able to print with it. It would be nice to have this feature added in Simplfy3D.
