Need Z axis offset before print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Need Z axis offset before print

I'm using Cura 3.6.0 and have an Anet A8 printer.  Because of the way I have the A8 setup it is impossible to get the distance between the print head and the bed exactly right.

 

I'm wondering if there is anything I can do within Cura to put in a correction for this problem.

 

Things worked well enough when I was using PLA, but now that I'm trying to use PETG, I can't get it right.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Where do I find the "Z Offset Plugin"?  I am new to this and didn't know there were any plugins for Cura.

You can find plugins in the "Marketplace" menu in Cura.

If you are looking for post processing scripts instead, check the "Extensions" -> "Postprocessing" menu.
