G29 'Bed level height' does nothing

Recommended Posts

Posted · G29 'Bed level height' does nothing

Hi, I have an Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus (230x230x300mm). The software this printer comes with is a very old version of Cura (15.x) and doesn't work with windows 8.


I am using Cura 4.0 and have set the printer to "Kossel Pro". The stardard dimensions are 230x230x270.


If type "G0 Z0" to go to bottom center (with no bed height 'G29') it goes down 2-3cm from the top.

If I type "G29 ___" (G29 anything), to set the bed height... then "G0 Z0" to go to bottom center, it goes down to 2.5cm from the bed every time.


Doesn't matter what I enter for G29.

Doesn't matter what I enter for the the printer dimensions height.


Is there some bed height value that is fixed for this printer?

What should I do to get my 300mm height kossel printer working?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
