Nozzle Too Far From Print Bed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Nozzle Too Far From Print Bed

Hi everyone

I recently purchased a 3D printer and it came today

I am using Cura as my slicer program

The g-code that it is exporting is making my extruder go roughly a mm too far from the print bed so nothing is sticking

How can I solve this?

Thanks - Chris

Make sure in cura you configured your "machine" to be "reprap" mode and not ultigcode. There should be a tab that has your start and stop gcode. You need to mess with that part. There may be suggestions from other people with your printer or if you have gcode that *does* work (from some other slicer) you can copy and paste the beginging gcodes into cura.
