Switching from Repetier to Cura - missing Z-height option?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Switching from Repetier to Cura - missing Z-height option?

My printer is a PrintRbot Simple Metal.

Instead of adjusting the Z height on the bed level sensor (which is a bit difficult) I use the Z-height setting in Repetier to add 0.2 mm to all Z values.

I can't seem to find this option in Cura. Any ideas?

(It is soo much easier to calibrate in software).

Best wishes,

Peter

Currently I am using a workaround in Gcode - which I hope works:

G1 Z0.2 ; move to 0.2 mm above Z=0

G92 Z0 ; set the current position to Z=0

Best wishes,

Peter

Just so you know, you can also do this adjustment in firmware, as well as the above start-code trick.

Cura won't get a setting for this. As I think that it's not the job of the slicer to adjust for this.

Thanks for the answer.

You think calibration should rest solely on the machines?

Anyhow - yes, I suppose I could get it to work with simply storing the value in the firmware.

Did not think about that. ;)

Ideally, yes. That's why people are slowly moving towards material settings in the machine (like filament diameter)
