Hi all,

I´m total lost, 1 have difficult to calibrate the print cores. It seems not right. Looks like the Iayers from core 2 is not correct position. I have tryed calibrate several times and i have read and followed the manual. So now I ask if anybody explain for a newbie or anyone have a video ?

    Are you talking about the XY calibration? Or the Z calibration? Anyway for XY calibration if you are entering a value larger than 5 or -5 you are probably doing it wrong. Don't even look beyond +/- 10. You want the pair of lines that are lined up the best.

    In the picture below I would say (assuming camera is perfectly overhead which it probably isn't but ignore that) -1, -2, -3 all look about perfect so choose the one in the middle: -2

    Also write down the values you chose for given combination (AA BB and AA AA) and always keep the same AA in the left side (mark it or just never ever take it out).

    Then if you do a print where X and Y position errors are more obvious you can skip the calibration printing on the glass like above and just enter a new value. But that only works if you remembered your old value I think. So write it down.
