XYZ Calibration (beta)

The build is ready, I am now working on the firmware.

Recently I had an idea how to implement XYZ Calibration, and now its implemented, in beta state. It doesn’t save anything, but it produces a report which can be used to configure the printer. The printer is also checking if the XY are perpendicular and displaying information how big is the difference, and how to reduce it (which rod should be moved backwards/forward).

Its recommended to run the XYZ Calibration from LCD while being connected from the PC by serial port (using eg. Prointerface or Repetier-Host).

Video demonstration:

The idea of moving to top of frame is taken directly from Original MK2.

The calibration can be also started by using gcode G666.

  1. that is not the mk42 bed right? so you have changed the routine to find the edge and use the edge to find out XY skew… if i guess correct that is nice

    now we just need to add a way to meassure if Z is tilting forward or backwards 😀
