The Magnetic heatbed enables you to use flexible, removable steel sheets. There are different properties and strengths of each sheet, but they also have different thickness which affects calibration.
Therefore we introduced Steel sheet profiles in firmware version 3.8.0 for MK2.5, MK2.5S, MK3, MK3S, MK3S+, and 4.3.0 for MINI and MINI+. On all machines, you will find Steel sheet profiles under Settings -> HW setup. It allows you to create up to 8 specialized profiles for your printer setup.
By default, each sheet has the same factory settings. You must set the value for each sheet you wish to use. You can then easily switch between the sheets (profiles), and the printer will load the stored values. The printer will not remind you to change the steel sheet profile, as it cannot sense which steel sheet you have.
There are currently eight sheet profiles available with predefined, but customizable names.
To set up the individual sheet profiles, please head to the LCDMenu -> Settings -> HW setup -> Steel Sheets:
For each sheet, the following settings are available:
As soon as two or more profiles are configured (by the First Layer Calibration), you will be able to quick-toggle between them directly from the main menu.
After selecting the Rename option in the sheet profile menu, you can change up to 7 characters of the profile name. The word "Sheet" cannot be changed; it is the "Smooth1", "Textur1" etc. that you can customize. There is no way to delete or erase a wrongly selected character, but you can always restart the renaming procedure.
You start from the left and move to the right. By turning the knob, you are changing the characters, and by clicking it, you confirm the current character and move to the next one. When a character position is redefined, a small chevron mark will appear underneath it.
Starting from the firmware version 4.3.0, there are currently eight sheet profiles available.
To set up the individual sheet profiles, please head to the LCD Menu -> Settings -> HW setup -> Steel Sheets (left picture).
For each sheet, the following settings are available (right picture):
As soon as two or more profiles are configured (by the First Layer Calibration), you will be able to quick-toggle between them directly from the Settings menu.
