    Has anyone messed around with Marlin’s auto bed leveling feature?

    There’s some good info there for implementing this on pcb which I assume would translate just as well to curved surfaces.

    Easy to implement auto level if you have a probe, but as far as I understand it converts it in to a vector plane and would not work for a curved surface.

    You’re probably correct, this program seems to read the gcode file as well as a probe measurement matrix and adjust accordingly to work with curved surfaces. http://www.scorchworks.com/Gcoderipper/gcoderipper.html

    That program looks like it could be really awesome. I have to try it on something. I am going to make a post in the software forum so hopefully more people check it out.
