3DTouch is an auto leveling sensor for 3D Printers that can precisely measure the tilt of your print surface. It can greatly improve the printing precision of your 3D Printer. 

 

3DTouch features simple, smart and precise. It could work with nearly any kind of bed materials, such as glasses, woods, metals and so on.

 

The main functions and controls of 3DTouch are the same as most auto bed leveling sensors, which consists of a RC servo and a micro switch, thus, 3DTouch can be used on almost every 3D printer control board. 

 

By using progressively designed solenoid and hall sensor, 3DTouch can integrate high precision in such a simple structure. To make it more user-friendly and to bring you more enjoyable printing experience we add many smart functions such as self-test, false alarm, alarm release and test mode for M119.

Features: 

1 Simple

3DTouch can be easily applied, since it has a small and simple structure. Gathering information & firmware setting will be an easy task, because 3DTouch works as usual auto bed leveling sensor.

 

2 Smart

Self-test: The push pin is operated three times to test when the power is on

Alarm: The LED light blinks if a problem found on a self-test or on an operation 

 

3 High-precision 

3DTouch’s Standard Deviation in repeatability is around 0.005mm, at that precise.

If you choose 3DTouch, your 3D printer will be high-class masterpiece, giving you an enjoyable experience.

 

4. Innovative Solenoid: Ultra Power Saving

On idle state, while the push-pin is whether pulled out or retracted, there are not any electric current flowing on solenoid, and standby electric current in the whole device is below 15mA on average, whereas on working state, while the pin is moving in sudden about 100ms, under 300mA flows in the device.

Low power consumption even further drops joule heating, preventing from heat problem.

 

5 Technologies 

3DTouch consists of Atmel ATtiny13A, solenoid, and a push pin.

 

6 wide Selection of Bed

3DTouch does not uses either optical, nor proximity (inductive/capacitive) sensor.

3DTouch is controlled by Hall Effect, providing high precision. Thus the bed material can be selected freely.

 

7 Optimized structure:  Larger Build Size

3DTouch is a small and technology-intensive one. Build size can be set larger than other existing auto bed leveling sensor.

3DTouch uses existing RC Servo motor signal intactly, so just plug 3DTouch on the same pins after removing servo motor.

 

Please note that:
3D touch auto leveling sensor is not plug_and_play; you will need to do some modification to your firmware and for some control board, you may need to do some soldering work to the connector. We have prepared the pins for you. 
For detailed instructions, please refer to the user manual. If you need any help, please feel free to contact us. 

 For more detailed information, please refer to wiki.

    Will this work on your Geeetech Prusa I3 X? Thanks in advance.

    • rita xiang | 01/12/2017

      Hello David, Yes, this can be used on pro X, Please watch the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aav0i5cOL4&feature=youtu.be


  • Roger Jenkins | 01/02/2017

    I have the Pro C dual extruder, if the same mount is the same as the pro B, how do I attach it when its where the fan is? or do I attach it against the fan?

    • rita xiang | 01/04/2017

      Yes, you can mount it against the fan!

    • rita xiang | 01/04/2017

      Hello Roger , you can print this one http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1769822


  • Laurent Vinel | 12/31/2016

    After printing a mount for the sensor (for the pro C), it seems that this is not the same as for the pro B. The gap between the holes is not the same, and the fan is at the same place. Where can I find the right support?


  • George Youssef | 12/09/2016

    I bought this package and it doesn't come with the extension wires to reach theboard . It's not much help without them. Can you recommend somewhere to get the extension wires?

    • rita xiang | 12/13/2016

      Hello George, thanks for contacting us, please send your enquiry to sales@geeetech.com, our sales will help you.


  • Charlie Spann | 12/04/2016

    I have a Geeetech i3 pro x, will this fit my machine. My machine works like the previous machine.

    • rita xiang | 12/04/2016

      yes, this works perfectly on the pro B


  • I D | 11/30/2016

    • rita xiang | 11/15/2016

      3-pin: Brown (-, GND) Red (+5V) Orange (control signal) 2-pin: Black (-, GND) White (Z min) can you find spare pins for the above wires?

      • Levi Gaskin | 11/16/2016

        Yes it looks like I can, attach it to the board. next question is about the programing, I have not see it on this printer yet, so I am a little concerned.


  • Daniel Rapaic | 11/04/2016

    Hi There, is the Geeetech prusa I3 A Pro supported and how to wire the sensor. I have purchase the sensor but figure out Z min has only 2 pins ?

    • rita xiang | 11/07/2016

      yes, there is only 2 pin on the board. but you can find the 3-pin in the package of the sensor. please refer to the user manual of the sensor for the wiring


  • Shiva H | 11/03/2016

    Hi,I bought I3 pro C in July2015.Board is GT2560.Is this board support 3DTouch auto leveling sensor?is it need aluminum heatbed?how to connect and what is sensing distance? thanks Shiva

    • rita xiang | 11/07/2016

      yes,,GT2560 support 3DTouch auto leveling sensor. You do need to add aluminum plate, glass also works. please refer to the user manual and download the sensor mount, then, everything will be easy.


  • Kevin Nguyen | 10/28/2016

    Would this work with the Geeetech Aluminum Prusa I3? I have the Sanguinololu +4A4988 board.

    • rita xiang | 11/01/2016

      yes, but if you add it to the Sanguinololu board, you can not use the LCD anymore cause the pin will be occupied


  • Frank van der Vegt | 10/18/2016

    In the manual you write: "Step1. Remove the Z max connector from the board and replace it with a 3Pin Straight Pin. You need to use soldering iron here." The Z-max connection on my board (Prusa I3 Pro B latest edition of a couple of weeks old) only has a 2-pin. How can I replace that with a 3-pin? Before I decide buy this sensor I would like to know for sure I can fit it easily.

    • rita xiang | 10/18/2016

      yes, there is only 2 pin for the Z max, that's why we need to replace it.We will send you the 3 pin Straight Pin, please check the package list for this sensor


  • Pascal Thümling | 10/03/2016

    Can i use the leveling Sensor with the MeCreator 2?

    • rita xiang | 10/06/2016

      yes, you can use it with the MeCreator 2.

      • Pascal Thümling | 10/22/2016

        Is there a Manual for the MeCreator2? Because the Z Axis drives down and not up when i use G28/G29


  • Levi Gaskin | 09/28/2016

    just a question how long does it take for you techs to get back with me, its been 3 days now?

    • rita xiang | 09/29/2016
