platen = glass?

You mean calibrate the leveling?

I demonstrate it here - takes less than a minute - go to 5:00 (5 minutes zero seconds). Same procedure for both UM2 and UM3 except for UM3 you have to do the second nozzle. Make sure you calibrate both nozzles the same way - if you do left nozzle without paper and right nozzle with paper than you will have problem.

Again - GO TO 5:00 IN VIDEO

    Hi gr5. I followed your guide, but with my printer seems to not work. When printing the first layer I see that there is little material in the platen.

     

    Could you share some photo's of what your first layer looks like? Thanks! :)

    For now I made the adjustment by eye. The first layer looks perfect, we must see the measures of the piece if they are correct. Tonight I update you.

    Did you apply a tiny amount of glue like in my video?

    Your bottom layer squish looks pretty good! This looks like good bed leveling! Congratulations!

    If the part warps off the bed then I would add a brim. And if you are thinking it will be a lot of work to remove all that brim then you can add the brim only on around the 3 circles. In CAD. Just make a .3mm tall brim. Make it 4mm - it will be zig-zag under the part but that's okay It will be strong - then remove the brim with a knife later.

    If the part doesn't warp off the bed then no brim needed.
