UM3 automatic leveling questions?

  • Is it possible to turn off the automatic leveling, not the initial leveling before printing, but the correctional z-axis adjustments that happens while printing.
  • How can I adjust the nozzle height z-axis setting for the automatic leveling. My nozzle is too close to the bed after automatic leveling and nothing can extrude when it prints. When the print starts, i can adjust the bed screws but soon the screws will be too turned all in.

 

Best regards

Kristoffer

    It is possible to turn of the automatic leveling, by doing a manual level. But why would you still want to measure but not actually use the data that you get from it? In that case it would be better to skip the measuring all together.

    If you do manual bed leveling, you also manually calibrate the nozzle offset. If you don't move around your printer often or switch cores, you should not need to calibrate all that often.
