Why is it that it's taken me 7 months to find mention of using a Dial Test Indicator to level the bed? D'Oh! | :doh:

I've been fiddling about with paper and even considered getting a BLTouch even though I don't think it's a true solution since it just compensates for a non-level bed rather than actually adjusting it.

And since I would still need to do basic bed levelling manually, I might as well do it properly so, since I have a glass bed which should be flat(1), I don't need a BLTouch!

Of course, as soon as I search for "3D printing dial test indicator" Google returns loads videos, mounts, etc.

I've ordered a cheap DTI off eBay and will be designing(2) an attachment shortly to see how well it works! Smile | :)

--
(1) The glass could be warped, in which case a BLTouch would help, but if it was noticeable, I'd just replace it.
(2) I have a custom mount for cooling fans round the hotend so standard fittings aren't going to work.
