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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
