Re: X-Level

OK Thanks
Yes, Mini2
I ask because I've been printing parts with the same profile / same filament but having to change z-height to get a good first layer. Varies from 1.09-1.11. Not sure why.

Re: Mini 2 Aerostruder heating block orientation?

With support's help, Mini 2 is fixed.
I was running Cura 3.2.25 and now back to 3.2.23.
Firmware was 1.1.8.66 and now back to 1.1.8.62.
Either or both caused problems described above and the visible rectangle of the heater block is now parallel to air cage. :)

Mini 2 Aerostruder heating block orientation?

This morning I changed the nozzle on my Mini2 and it started wiping with the nozzle in front of the pad. I notice that the heating block was parallel to the faces of the cooling cage and recalled that the heating block on my machine has always been rotated at 45°. OK, I must have rotated it to paral...

Re: How to add X-Level to Gcode Header?

Thanks for this. It's been added to my Gcode header for many days, many prints. Question: This morning I printed what I think was a near perfect print. I ran it a second time (w/ code to re-level x) and first layer printed very differently! Like the nozzle was nearly touching the build plate... firs...

Gcode and Z offset

After setting and storing a new Z offset and homing Z, is there a Gcode command that will position the nozzle at the new printing height?

Re: .25mm nozzle PLA profile?

After threading in a .25 nozzle to heater block the z-height will likely change somewhat? I’m having trouble getting the bead of PLA to stick to the plate during the skirt-ing. Is there a procedure for re-identifying the correct z-height (other than adjusting setting by .01 and printing a test)? ......
