Omni3D Head Leveling Control™

Omni3D Head Leveling Control is based on the direct measurement of the distance in the Z axis between the right and left extruder.

The automatic extruder leveling system (automatic extruder height control) enables:

  • automatic calibration of the distance between the nozzle and the table,
  • automatic calibration of the height of nozzles in relation to each other,
  • making a mesh map, thus minimizing the impact of table unevenness on the printout.

The extruder automatic leveling system consists in direct measurement of the distance in the Z axis between the right and left extruder. Thanks to this, it allows the head to be used as a probe for the Z-axis leveling sensor. The uniqueness of this system is that the movable heads allow you to take measurements exactly in the place where the filament flows out, i.e. under the nozzle, and not through the sensor, which is away from the tip of the nozzle. Therefore, it gives more accurate information about the position of the head, and this significantly affects the precision of calibration and, consequently, the quality of the printout. In addition, the solution has been programmed in such a way that the calibration of the heads and the table is maintenance-free.


In addition, the automatic extruder height control system minimizes the risk of violating the printout by an inactive head. Lifting the head during printing makes it less likely that the head will catch on the print, and there is no need to consider risk zones when designing and preparing a file. Due to the fact that both heads are movable, the printout never collides with one of the heads and the printing process is not disturbed in any way.

As you can see, the automatic extruder height control system facilitates the operation of the printer, which itself can set the correlation between the heads. At the same time, it gives the user the freedom to create designs without geometric limitations, which would be impossible in the case of two-head printing with a constant head height.
