Hi I have the Labists ET4 and have leveled it manually and auto. but until last night I had terrible prints, some would print half way then it would just send out the filament anywhere but not on the model.

Last night I tried by sending home first then moving the Z to touch bed, then to print and had a raft. That has seemed to work it, but if I have to use  the Raft every time its going to use a lot more filament then I would like is there anything I can do. got real fed up with trying to level it as its been over a week and got no where at all. 

Labists say please do profile print if doesn't work please try level. I cannot do anymore leveling,

    1. Take a day off.

    2. Watch gr5's video.

    3. Take another day off.

    4. Try leveling again.  It does two things.  It places the bed so that the nozzle is always at the same distance.  It determines where "0" Z is.  That is the part that people find difficult.  I use parchment paper but a thin store receipt would work as well.
