Automatic nozzle X,Y,Z offset tester
When 3D printing with multiple nozzles it is imperative to know the X,Y,Z offset of each nozzle, related to the 1st nozzle. Obtaining the correct offset by trial and error takes up a lot of time. Obtaining the offset while printing is not possible.
Method of solution
We made an automatic calibration pad that touches the nozzle (or any other tool) in X, Y and Z direction, and obtains the correct position of each tool individually. The calibration pad is powered and the tools are connected to ground. By touch a signal is given to the processor and settings can be adjusted while printing.
