UM3, fine tuning bed height after calibration

Recommended Posts

I have leveled the bed manually, and am using the active leveling now and then, but I would still love to be able to change the bed height ever so slightly when I see the bottom layer too squished or not squished enough. I could always recalibrate, but that still leaves some inaccuracies when done by hand. Is there a parameter I can change in software on the printer to add an offset to the z-height after the active leveling?

    • "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.
