Initial height with multiple hot ends

I have 2 hot ends, one with a 0.50 nozzle and one with a 0.35 nozzle. I change them a couple times a week..... 0.35 for PLA, 0.50 for TPU.

Re: Leveling the bed on rev. E

At work (where I use the M2), we have a couple of $$$ Zeiss Prismo CMMs. They're basically built out of granite blocks - the table, the Y axis - and ceramic - the X and Z axes.

M2 V4 Starting Issue

Hola - I'm having trouble with the very beginning of a print. The hot end is not extruding any material for the first 2 or 3 inches of travel; this leads to raft problems because it can't attach the ends of the pattern and it lifts up.
