A question about autoleveling and g92 command.
+Whosa whatsis 

Due to my probe arrangement ( and it happens with every other printers probe arrangement) i am having an issue using non grid auto levelling. for defining 3 points (which are at extreme points of my bed) the co-ordinate are inserted manually and someone of which are going in negative as i have to give probe co-ordinate and not nozzle. This info is not relevent to my issue. but i needed to tell it as you can see why i have this issue.

Say i ran g29 and then change the co-ordinate with g92 X0 Y0.
then does the autoleveling matrix shift accordingly ( i presume it will require a change in z only) or it will remain intact. 
Imagine at my previous (0,0) my dynamic z co-ordinate assighned by autoleveling is "x" , now if i move my origin to another point then will it be "x" again or new x is considered which was actual correct z before g92

I needed to do this to get co-odinates fir my beds as by probe points are outside of its and to reach those i have to use larger then normal co-ordinates in firmware. 

I hope my question is clear.if not please ask so.

Thanks in advance.

i have already setup and know how to use it.the issue is with co-ordinate required to define probe are of the probe and not nozzle which in 1 case go outside to negative side.

how these guys can change the code made for replicator 1 for adding such features ? is there a fork of marlin that allows it?
Also is there a way to add the leveling script in replicator and ultimaker 2 which waits for input

Have anybody tried the autolevel with normal Cartesian machine(not delta)  ? have you guys found any difference ? I see there should be slant in base it wont be right angled.

update on auto level. i tried it today. took more time then i though due to the dimension change in machine and as i use max endstop for x and y there were marlin issue. fixed by getting latest marlin.4 probes are not enough because my psu is bit weak and due to 2 fans and led and servo the servo twitches.
+Whosa whatsis there are some vertical artifices but the prints are more smooth to feel then before.

Any of my friends in usa. Please file prior arts application against the patents submission of makerbot who are taking the work of community and claiming there own 
Early this morning, someone on one of the 3D Printer development list that I belong to pointed out that MakerBot recently filed a slew of patents.  Skimming through the patents filed, I came across this: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/y2014/0117575.html As someone who had been working with auto-levelling on the Kossel Pro, this was a very rude surprise.  In a nutshell - Auto Levelling is The Next Big Thing for repraps.  It is what...

possibly the worst 3d printer design.
 
This has been another big week for consumers within the 3D Printing space. Printer qualities continue to improve as prices drop substantially. Earlier this week

This is mission impossible, 500 printers to make in this year alone, still have to finalize the parts for production.....never gonna happpen. This screams fail all over the place. I wont even go into technical details.

Hi Karan,
Just got on this page while hunting for 3d printers. I am in Pune and I need to chk out your 3d printer up close. Do let me know if and how it can be arranged.
Thanks.

I agree with +Anthony Morris acrylic is ok but when tighting the nut bolts i cant tight it enough. also acrylic is expensive. i am finding birch plywood locally but chances are slim. can you suggest any other wood material (i can do mdf but its not good for tabs and all.) or any other material suitable for printrbot jr. ?
