The obtained patent protects a solution applied in 3D printers M200. Concerned is an original system of calibration of the working platform, which is an essential element of 3D print.
Methods of calibration in another 3D printers available on the market, base on manual measurements. The main reason for the onerousness of a manual calibration process is the necessity of multiple verification of the obtained calibration result through trial and error. In out M200 we worked out an automatic measurement of calibration points, what eliminates errors in preparing of a 3D print, which should be very precise.
