The Perfect First Layer.

What is it?

The first layer of a 3D print is vital in order to reach a successful outcome. To ensure the first layer sticks to the build platform and has an even thickness it’s important that the platform is ‘leveled’.

All Tractus3D printers have automatic build platform compensation. A sensor in the build plate checks for any imperfections and automatically compensates it. The calibration is done in less than 50 seconds and you are ready to print.

Why do you need this?

Without automatic build platform compensation you have to manually level the build plate. This is always tricky and requires a lot of tweaking. When operating a Tractus3D printer you don’t have this hassle.

Every 3D printer user will agree automatic build platform compensation saves a lot of time and reduces the risk of a failed 3D printed object.
