3.5.1 cant find Z-Offset

The plugin uses a similar (but different) trick to that, but adds a setting to the sidebar so you can edit the offset without having to go into Machine Settings to edit the start gcode. This setting can also be stored in profiles, so you can have different profiles with different amounts of "squish".

I see this as a fundamental setting, odd its only supplied by a plugin.


Yellowshark,  if you switch types of filaments it allows you to change an important setting on the fly.  As ahoeben said but to expand:

If I use PLA I want some squish to make adhesion to the build plate so I reduce my Z-offset a tad to attain squish, but with PETG I don't want any squish as it will OVER adhere and be far too hard to get off the plate.


I maintain profiles for my materials so I can fast change all my settings without having to play gcode games ?
