Adjustable front legs


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Adjustable front legs



There are these two metal rods next to each front leg, is this adjustable legs? and if so, where can I adjust them. Is it the screw next to them. 


I can't find anything about it in the user manual.

    No.  Those are not for adjustable legs.


    Note that your S5 does not need to be level.  It will print on it's side or you can hang it upside-down from a rope and it prints just fine as long as the filament doesn't fall off the spool holder.


    The bed doesn't technically need to be "level".  It instead needs to be parallel with the gantry that moves the nozzle around.  But UM calls it "leveling".

    Okay, thanks for the reply. I haven't had any need to adjust the printer. but if it was adjustable legs i could as well use them. do you know what they are. just asking of curiosity. 🙂
