[Closed] Steel sheet detector? (Kinda works)
Steel sheet detector? (Kinda works)
We all know that we are not to print directly on the heatbed of the mk3. My original bed got damaged, I bought another one. I added a break beam sensor next to the LCD. Maybe this could be implemented in the later versions of the printer. My sensor works by firstly moving the Y axis to the maximum. The break beam sensor has a slot, where it detects the steel sheet(and By the way, the corner of the sheets stick out of the bed). I really like this, but I can only power down the printer if it didn’t detect the sheet. Did anyone try this, and please reply to this topic if you did. I hope that this feature shall be implemented in the firmware, and stop the printer if there is no sheet.
