Calibration simplification idea/question


#1

Just wondering if it would be possible to add a configuration method in which you could just mark sheet center then manually jog the sled to align with center, then tell ground control it is centered. From this point run triangle calibration for final adjustment and done!?
Seems you could avoid a lot of calibration steps and simplify if this is possible.

We played around with something like that but it turned out not to be accurate enough. All the measurements need to be precise to sub mm accuracy which we found was too much to ask folks to measure. Sometimes it would work, but we got a lot of emails saying that it wasn’t good enough.

There are actually several thing to adjust and center is only one of several things to find. I have gone through the exercise to find each one and explain that over here
