How does a BLTouch Level the bed?
The key difference between an inductive probe and the BLTouch is that the BLTouch sensor physically touches the bed in the leveling process. The inductive probe uses currents induced by magnetic fields to detect metal objects nearby, eliminating the need to physically touch the bed in order to sense it.
Do you need to level bed with BLTouch?
According to ALL3DP, “BL-Touch is equivalent to a microswitch mounted on a servo arm controlled by a servo motor. The BL-Touch device makes it easier to set the printer bed ready without wasting time fiddling with the bed and Z-axis height. Even though you are not a machinist, bed leveling is not a hassle either.
What does bl-touch do?
BL-Touch is a smart auto leveling sensor for 3D printers based on open source, which can precisely measure and adjust the distance between the build plate and printer nozzle in a simple and easy way. Automatic leveling achieves via the collaboration between the BL-touch device and its firmware.
