UM3 Z-offset

Recommended Posts

Alrighty then, ye firmware geeks, amaze me:


Can anyone tell me where the Z-offset between the print cores gets stored in the printer? I'm getting sick of leveling this thing until I'm blue in the face before it gets just right, so I'm looking for a manual edit option somewhere. Cheers 🙂

If you put the machine in dev mode, ssh to it, you need to edit the settings in the following file /var/lib/griffin/printer_preferences.json

Ahh you're a star. Thanks so much!


Funny how sometimes you just know you read something somewhere, but for the life of you it won't pop up no matter how much you google away. Then of course when you have the answer, the thread can be googled in 5 seconds flat.

    • "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.
