IR Z Probe DC42

  • Hello new member here just made the user but i have been reading of of here for quite awhile now. 🙂

    I'm currently building a HEVO corexy printer and my plan was you use the IR sensor by DC42 but my bed is gonna be PEI.
    In the guide it states that if i paint the back black it would work but it seems like it also triggers on scratches on the surface?

    should i use another sensor or is the IR sensor gonna be fine?
    PEI is 0,8 mm thigh

    people seem to clam that the peizo is extremely good but i haven't been able to find a mount with the piezo and the chimera from e3d

    Yes the trigger height of the IR sensor can be affected by scratches on the surface of the PEI. The piezo should give more accurate results.
