Need Z axis offset before print

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
