I would like to set a negative Z offset of -0.15mm into my gcode. This is something I have to do manually every time I start a print - I could change my auto home position but I have tried and can ever achieve a suitable accuracy. 


I have installed the Z-offset plugin but the code states that "minimum_value": "-(layer_height_0 + 0.15)".  (https://github.com/fieldOfView/Cura-ZOffsetPlugin/blob/3.5/ZOffsetPlugin.py#L29) My initial layer height is 0.2mm allowing me to enter a Z-offset of -0.05. I would like to edit the code so that it reads "minimum_value": "-(layer_height_0 + 0.05)". How would I go about doing this?


Many thanks

    Hello All,


    I have found a solution, so I will reply to my own message so in future this might help someone else instead of deleting this thread. (please correct me if this is wrong)


    To edit plugin code go to  Help -> Show configuration folder. This will take you to the folder where the plugins are kept, from there edit the code as nessary.
