Callibrate the hot bed

I like using Pronterface, and just using the Z-home and Z +1 buttons to control the head to move up and down while I move the head around by hand.

Since the hot bed has 3 screws,

-- I move the head to the right front and z-home, then adjust the front right screw with the paper method.

-- Then use Z + 1 to lower the bed and I move the head to the left front and z-home, then adjust the front left screw with the paper method,

-- Then use Z + 1 to lower the bed and I move the head to the middle back and z-home, then adjust the middle back screw with the paper method

-- then repeating just to check and also checking back corners and middle

This way I can move the head all around and come back to points if I need to. I do this when the head is cold. and I do not use Pronterface to move the X or Y since this would cause the steppers to engage and I would have a hard time moving the print head around.
