Moving manually the print head ?

Hi,

Is there a way to move the print head in front (or where we want) manually ?

For exemple to be more confortable to clean the nozzle.

Boris.

You can just manually grab the print head and move it. If you have been printing recently, the x and y motors may be powered still, locking the head in place. In that case you can either power the printer off, or just wait a minute or two for the motor lock to time out.
