Setting Bed Height Relative to the Nozzle and leveling the bed

  1. Go to the Control tab and click Disable Motors.
  2. Click the home button under the Z controls
  3. Check the Z height between nozzle and bed at 4 touchpoints: the three kinematic couplers and the central wingnut. Distance between nozzle and bed should be 0.003" or 0.076mm at each point. You can check using a piece of paper or the appropriate feeler gauge. The height is correct when your paper/gauge just begins to drag.
  4. Do not consider the bed level until you check all 4 touchpoints consecutively without making any adjustments. Click the home button under the Z controls after each adjustment made.
  5. Depending on how much you need to adjust a bed, you can opt to re-calibrate the blade height afterward.
