Adjust the Z-Offset

Occasionally, you may have trouble getting enough travel from your printer’s leveling screws to properly level the bed. This could happen while switching between two print beds or after a system reset, for example. To achieve better leveling, you can run through the following steps to adjust the Z-offset on your printer.

If you are currently running either the Laser Bed Level or Shim Bed Level utility, press Cancel in the top right corner of the touchscreen.

Before running the Adjust Z Offset utility, be sure to raise the fiber nozzle up such that it sits no lower than your plastic nozzle. Please also ensure that the print bed is present and placed on the print stage. 

  1. Select the menu icon from the dashboard.

  2. Select the Bed Level tile from the available options.

  3. Select the Adjust Print Bed Z Offset tile from the available options.

  4. Read the safety warning on the screen and press Continue when prompted.

  5. Raise the thumb screws until they are finger tight, at their highest position, and press Next.

  6. Using the onscreen buttons, adjust the height of the print bed at the first point until the plastic nozzle just barely touches the print bed, then press Next.

  7. Using the onscreen buttons, adjust the height of the print bed at the second point until the plastic nozzle just barely touches the print bed, then press Next.

  8. Using the onscreen buttons, adjust the height of the print bed at the third point until the plastic nozzle just barely touches the print bed, then press Next.

  9. Lower the thumbscrews until the flexures are bottomed out and flush against the print stage, then press Next.

  10. Using the onscreen buttons, adjust the height of the print bed at the first point until the plastic nozzle just barely touches the print bed, then press Next.

  11. Using the onscreen buttons, adjust the height of the print bed at the second point until the plastic nozzle just barely touches the print bed, then press Next.

  12. Using the onscreen buttons, adjust the height of the print bed at the third point until the plastic nozzle just barely touches the print bed, then press Next.
