Calibrate Every Time?

Posted · Calibrate Every Time?

Hello, we just got our Ultimaker 2 Go. Do we have to calibrate the machine every time we turn it on? If not, what is the first step to operating the machine (after calibration). Do we just turn it on and feed the plastic into the machine? I know this sounds very simple but we can find an answer to these questions. Thank you.

    The first time you ever use the machine or after a factory reset it forces you to do the bed calibration. Once done it won't bug you about that the next time you turn it on.

    I recommend not using the calibration paper and instead having the nozzle touch the glass - just use your eye. and/or push the bed up and down a little when doing the front corners.

    For future prints if the printer has no material loaded you can do the advanced menu and then INSERT MATERIAL menu item. If the material is already loaded then you can just go straight to PRINT.
