I know this is a common issue (and therefore a probably common thread) - but I need some pro tips regarding bed leveling.
I’ve tried searching this forum but keep getting the “search terms are too common” error for things like “bed leveling” or threads about automating/leveling assist mods.
I’m having a hell of a time leveling my bed (Taz 5). I’ve made a couple passes at it but feel that, in my excitement/inexperience that I’ve completely made a mess of it.
I feel like I’m chasing a moving target (that or my heated bed is warped). I’m finding the center of the bed is much higher than the corners …and every time I do a circuit to each corner and set the height, the center again becomes too high (when all corners are more or less the same using the paper test).
I hope that makes sense.
The question is: Is there a way to start over? Like setting all the screws to a snug position and working from there?
I’ve tried setting the Z in the center - then tried to match the home corner to that…but that doesn’t seem to work.
For the record - I’m doing this with the nozzle/bed ready to print HIPS (I read something about doing it heated allows for expansion).
The kicker is - I have bought a dial indicator so that I can level precisely, the only issue is - I need a level bed to print it. :-/
Thanks in advance (and sorry for asking such a basic question).
