CURA start.gcode - meaning of Z0.0

Recommended Posts

Hi - this one may have better success in this form rather that Troubleshooting ...

It's about Z calibration and prints that seem to begin too far away from the print-plate.

When I look at the start.gcode added by Cura to GCode, I see the explanation :

" .....

; if your prints start too high, try changing the Z0.0 below

; to Z1.0 - the number after the Z is the actual, physical

; height of the nozzle in mm.

.......

G1 Z0.0 F{max_z_speed} "

But if I put Z to be a positive number it'll increase the distance between nozzle and print plate, no ?

Can some explain please ? How does a +ve value reduce nozzle-printplate gap ?

Salutations
