The title says it all. This term is thrown around occasionally here, and appears in tinkergnomes firmware but I've not found any real description of what it refers to.

What is "babystepping"?

Hi Rick, i'm pretty sure that you asked this before... :)

...and here you have a short explanation of the idea (and the naming) from the inventor Bernhard Kubicek

I use it sometimes to fine tune the z-position while the skirt is printed, or if i want to print a single piece on bluetape and don't want to re-level the buildplate.

x and y corrections are perhaps useful if you want to recover an aborted print, but i think usually there's no need for that on the UM2...

in short:

babystepping == lazy z-height fixing during printing
