FDM 3D printer bed leveling with cheap piezoelectric elements

RepRap 3D printing engineers Michael Simpson and Simon Khoury have carried out a scientific study into the use of cheap piezoelectric elements for bed leveling and nozzle contact detection in FDM/FFF 3D printers. The study found the elements effective even at high temperatures. RepRap 3D printers and other low-cost FDM 3D printers are the heart and soul of the maker community and one of the biggest reasons for the consumer 3D printing boom of recent years. But these 3D printers have their limitations: technology made from cheap components and 3D printed parts means some of the more luxurious features […]
