Calibration in Voxelizer

Calibration workflow in Voxelizer Software helps to calibrate the worktable of your ZMorph machine. It requires an extra add-on called the Touch probe to work.

Please note that ZMorph 2.0 SX model uses a different Touch probe than previous models.

Touch probe in ZMorph 2.0 and older models is mounted underneath the carriage with magnets, while for ZMorph 2.0 SX it is mounted in place of cooling fan at the front. For more information and tutorial on how to mount it, please search our knowledge base.

 

Let’s take a few seconds to explain the meaning of some of the controls and options:

Show touch probe - Will make you see where all the control points and other associated information regarding your calibration are in Voxelizer, we recommend to have this option turned On.

Averging - This option is automatically on to align the calibration results with the height of the table. Turn this option off to display absolute results without the point of comparison.

Configuration:

Min X - This value represents the lowest point at the X-axis at which the first control point will be. Should be set to at least 10mm.

Min Y - This value represents the lowest point at the Y-axis at which the first control point will be.

Below you can see two examples where:


Minimum value on the X and Y axes is at 40.


Minimum value on the X and Y axes is at 70.

This simply means that the starting point will be 40 or 70 mm from the 0 point.

Max X - This value represents the highest point at the X-axis at which the last line of control point will be.

Max Y - This value represents the highest point at the Y-axis at which the last line of control point will be.

Similarly to minimum values, the max values determines the end point on the upper right corner of the table and how far from the edge the last control points will be.

Start Z - Establishes the height of Z-axis at which the controlling will take place.

Step X - Determines the frequency of control point at X-axis (higher value = fewer control points).

Step Y - Determines the frequency of control point at Y-axis (higher value = fewer control points).

Below you can see two examples of:


X and Y axes control points at 80.


X and Y axes control points at 30.


Move Speed -The speed at which the Touch Probe moves from one point to another.

Probe Speed - Speed at which the Touch Probe touches the control point.
