Clearing out the rats nest in me mind on leveling

Recommended Posts

OK, I get the manual leveling as a way to set a distance, equally on the main 3 points.

But, here is where I am not sure of the purpose of Active Leveling:

Since it went to 3 different points from manual leveling, I am assuming (and we know how dangerous that can be) that the active leveling is not setting distance but checking alignment from one nozzle to the other by way of using the 'touch build-plate glass' to check the comparative distance between nozzles.

So, right? Wrong? Go get more coffee and clear those cobwebs manually?
