Bed Warped

by zackpollard_04

I've been messing with my Tarantula off and on for quite sometime and just realized my bed is warped. Is there an easy fix for this, like just putting a piece of glass on top of the bed to get an even surface?

MKS Base v1.4 pinout

by Denis56

Hi all,

I am looking for the complete pinout (and if possible a schematic) of the MKS Base v1.4 sold with my Tarantula, and I cannot find it. I specifically want to locate pins 4 and 44, for a few mods I'd like to try, but no joy so far. Attached is a picture of the board. Thanks for your help.

auto level question

by techevil

hiya guys, im sure im not the first person to be disappointed with the rather flawed design of the auto level system on the tarantula. while I have a wonderful solution for it in the works that ill post the stl files for, I ran across one more issue. I attempted to use the magnetic print bed I bought online, but the stock autolevel apparently is looking for the metal base. has anyone found a decent proximity sensor that responds to any surface that will work with the tarantula? if so please let me know, im open to all suggestions.
