So I’ve had my mini for all of 12 hours, however I’ve been printing up a storm. One thing I’ve noticed is that the Z bed level detection works great sometimes and not others. Seems like a little bit of filament on the tip will prevent it from detecting the metal pad. I’m afraid it is going to bend my y axis rods. When this happens the bed is driven down with pretty strong force and I end up with a part that isn’t the correct final height with lots of overextrusion on the first number of layers.
When it is working properly it barely touches the pad and it works great. I’ve been using a wet paper towel on the tip to make sure it is clean. Is there a better technique? * I was extruding PLA *.
I’d be interested if anyone else is seeing this behavior.
BTW: I’m using the start gcode that cleans the tip.
