First layer starting too high

Post by teehax » Thu Nov 07, 2019 3:57 pm


My lulzbot mini seems to be starting the first layer too high (see picture). The leveling start sequence appears to behave correctly, but then it doesn't actually deposit the first layer close enough to the bed.

Any help would be wonderful :)

I included a FAQ about what this issue so far below.


* leveling sequence appears to be behaving correctly. The head cleans itself, double touches all four corners.
* Yes, I changed the cleaning pad
* I disabled the z-offset plugin in cura
* M851 Z-Offset is currently -1.28 (see below)

Send: M851
Recv: echo:Z Offset : -1.28
