z-height adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hi, on my thing-o-matic we set the z-axis by putting a card or paper under the nozle.. turn the ballscrew till the card is tight then hit ok. and this sets the z-axis start height.... now this is with rep_g but can we have something like this for Cura? be nice.

I think you just need to remove the Z homing from the start code for this. Right the start code assumes the Z0 position is at the endstop. But nothing stops you from messing with the start code to remove this.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
