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
