how can i do to let Z become 0

Are you sure that's what you want?  Z=0 means the nozzle is touching the print bed.  In some cases that means you just smashed through your part.


At least you should move the head to one of the corners first.  For example front left corner is 0,0.


G0 X0 Y0   ; this moves the head to the corner

G0 Z0        ; this brings the nozzle down to the glass - likely hitting the part if it's large - for some printers the part will hit the roof of the printer if you do this



Or maybe instead you want to move the bed all the way down?  Does your bed move or does your nozzle move?  Anyway that would make more sense.  it depends how large your printer is.  If your printer is 100mm tall then you could do:

G0 Z100 and that will move the nozzle 100mm from the bed.


You can insert these gcodes near the end of the gcode file.  After the very last G1 or G0 command but before anything else.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
