Posted · can't get buildplate original+ to level properly

Hi,

it seems like i can't get the buildplate to level properly. The springs are complety stretched but nozzle is not close enough to the buildplate. Is there another way to get the nozzle and buildplate closer together?

appreciate the help...

    Just lower the Z-home switch!

    Put some tension in the springs, then move the build plate manually against the nozzle and finally lower the switch until it clicks. That will give you a good start to fine tune with the springs afterwards.
