All induction proximity probes alter the sensing distance with increased temperature. This might affect the quality of the first printed layer. P.I.N.D.A. v2 probe, included in the MK3S/MK3/MK2.5S/MK2.5, has an embedded thermistor inside its body to measure the temperature and fully compensate for the drift. A pre-calibrated data table is stored in the printer and the temperature calibration is active by default.
However, it can drift out of calibration over time, and you may also find this calibration helpful when weather and temperatures change in the spring and autumn.
The calibration is fully automatic, but we will lead you through it so you know it went OK.
This calibration can take 15-20 minutes to go through. The temperature-calibration has to run after a completed XYZ-calibration, and it can be recommended to run PID-calibration beforehand, should you receive any errors, like "Thermal Runaway", when running the calibration.
