I do not mean to offend anyone, but here is a serius tip; I don’t know any skilled user of 3d printers who needs auto bed levelling. Anyone who would recommend auto-bed leveling, is clearly not skilled enough to offer advice on the matter.[/quote]
And anyone saying this is clearly not skilled enough to state something so arrogant. I know plenty of skilled 3d printer-people with bend beds who would benefit from mesh leveling. Yes, obviously you can just upgrade your bed to a flat one, but the point here is that in practise some beds are bend and mesh leveling actually helps. With an inductive sensor you still need to zero it in; but that is beyond the point; an automatic bed-leveling would still be useful (if it works, that is).
Obviously it seems like you don’t need it; good for you.[/quote]
Obviously it did offend you, If so, i’m sorry, but only the injured wolf cries out.
But no, i don’t need it, and like i said, i don’t really think anyone does.
If you need a flat item, a printer with an uneven bed with mesh leveling, will never give you a flat item.
To me, adding equipment that automatically accounts for uneven beds that should be even, is to me at least, unprofessional. But eh, if that makes me arrogant, i’ll take that too.
I have owned and built many types of printers, but in context of this debate, i’d like to mention my M3D Micro.
This is the cheapest printer i’ve had - you cant even level the bed, at all, its firmly stuck. You can’t level the rods either. It doesn’t even have endstops. BUT, non of it it necessary. It printed perfectly even the first time, and everytime since.
This printer is a very good example that there is no reason to over-complicate things.
You can print perfect without leveling. You can print perfect with manual leveling. Tell me more about automatic leveling.
