    ANET A8 - Auto Levelling Is Rubbish!

    I'm not sure what the fuss is about, the RIKO sensor has too large a tolerance to be accurate and the firmware (at least the standard one) is merely using the the sensor as a replacement for the Z-switch, not profiling the heatbed as I assumed it would. The "Next" step appears to do nothing more than the first step and the Z correction only applies during printing, at which point it may try to center-punch the bed!

    So you still have to set up the bed perfectly level, every time, and the user gains inaccuracy for their effort.

    A bit like the many fan ducts, it's one to avoid I think!

    I too have an Anet A8 3D Printer and its auto levelling feature works well enough. But if you are experiencing some troubles in your printer, I would suggest you to see a technician soon.

      Hi I do not any thing about the Anet, how ever, I am sure that you could manually level the bed. Have you tried going on utube?There is some great info there related to 3d printing and bed leveling. Good luck
