A new 3D printing head with auto bed levelling technology has been created in the form of the Stinger II. The integrated printhead system has been designed to enable 3D printer owners to easily upgrade and add new features to their machine. Such as a new hot end holder, fang cooling ducts, auto bed levelling sensors, fans and more. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the 3D printhead which is launched via Kickstarter this week and is now available from $88 for early bird backers.
If all goes well and the Kickstarter campaign is successful in manufacturing progresses smoothly worldwide shipping is expected to take place during April 2019. “The Stinger acts as a Liaison between your build surface and your sensor. It plays two important roles that no other system does. It contacts the surface, telescoping the entire hot end up to “meet” the sensor. The accuracy of your sensor, no matter which technology type you have or desire, will not be affected by temperature in general, the temperature deficiency around the cooler outer portions of the bed or humidity and ambient temperature.”
“It also senses the exact spot on your bed that it needs to in order to write the mesh back to your machines memory. No shadows, No cold spots… it’s all about the placement and precision of the sensor and repeat-ability of the position and feedback from your surface. Those conditions never change.”
