Custom Z Offset per material


Recommended Posts

Posted · Custom Z Offset per material

Hi all,


Is it possible to have a custom Z offset, depending on material, eg.


M851 results in Z-1.4


Let's say that is my default for PLA. Now I want 0.05 less for PETG. So it automatically changes M851 to Z-1.350 ---- ie. VARIABLE given to change, not a fixed number.


Any suggestions is appreciated!

    See the Material Settings plugin in the Marketplace in combination with the Z Offset Setting plugin.
