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.
