Sonic Mighty 8K: Upgraded Z-Axis Control

Sonic Mighty 8K: Upgraded Z-Axis Control

To make your 3D printing experience easier and smoother, we’ve upgraded some functions in the Sonic Mighty 8K LCD 3D Printer to better suit our user needs. One of them is an upgraded z-axis control function. With this new feature, you can easily adjust your z-axis offset with just a few clicks on your all-touch-screen panel on your 3D printer.  

What is z-offset, and why do we need to adjust it? As the name suggests, z-offset is an offset space in your z-axis between the building plate and the LCD screen. It is an essential feature in a 3D printer, especially as you embark deeper into your 3D printing journey. For example, when you are printing with specialty/functional resins with a thicker viscosity, you’ll need to increase your z-offset so the resin will have enough space to relevel in the resin vat.
