  1. I have been having trouble since I bought a new brass nozzle. I replaced the old one with the same type, after over a year of daily prints. Now I have two problems.

    1. When doing the Checkup using Cura 3.1, the nozzle temperature never says "checked", even though the nozzle heats to 180C and stays with in +/- 0.5C. 

    (I won't worry too much about that, since it's heating.) The X, Y, and Z-stops and also the bed temperature Checkup just fine.

    2. The first layer is not good. I have set the Z-stop, and with blue Loctite for vibrating screws, held it in place, in the right place. The Z-stop seems to be fixed in place. I leveled the bed manually, using Z=0 on the controller. All good so far. Then I tried to print. First try, first layer, skirt and outline of part looked nice, but there was some lifting. So I stopped the print and added glue to the glass plate. Started over with the print. The nozzle was too close to the bed! I manually leveled again, moving the bed down with the 3 screws on the bottom, and it looks good. Print again - too far away! Next, I hooked up my PC by USB and go through Cura to level the bed. It did not need adjusting. But, the filament is still not touching the bed.

    -- bottom line, bed seems leveled, but doesn't seem to be consistent. --

     

    I also updated the firmware to DEV, 250000_single at the same time as I changed the nozzle. Could that have an impact?
