New bed level sequence pushes the bed

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · New bed level sequence pushes the bed

I have noticed the new bed level sequence in the .8 and .11 firmware actually pushes the nozzle slightly into the bed, it's not by much but compared to the older version which literally just made contact with the glass, I assume UM have considered this and we are not looking at slight bending of the build platform over the longer time ?


It's obviously doing as expected as the first layer is perfect, but from a visual perspective it was nicer to see the bed not being flexed at all (even by this tiny amount)


I assume this more direct contact was required to improve the accuracy of the process ?
