Description

SpreadSheet Leveling is a method to level (calibrate the height differences) of a print bed inside a delta printer with an interactive SpreadSheet and a caliber instead of a screw driver.

Assumption

  • Use a Delta Printer
  • The Linear System is orthogonal to the Base Box
  • The Linear System is placed 120° to each other
  • The Bed is mounted parallel to the Base Box
  • The Bed has a high stiffness. E.g. it is a mirror or has a glass plate on top
  • Using a Firmware which has settings for "Endstop Offset" like Repetier-Firmware or Marlin

Workflow

The spredsheet guides you through the following steps (overview):

  • Readout EEPROM from firmware and type in
  • Move the effector to 4 measurement positions, read caliber and type in
  • (Calculation)
  • Put calculated values back to EEPROM
  • Verify

Tested with Repetier-Firmware and Repetier-Host. The bed was leveled in less than 10 minutes.
