is this going to be a difficult print, easy peasy, or somewhere in between?

Re: Print bed homes properly, but drops to begin printing

maybe M2Marlin-11-30-2015 firmware? Global reset?

Re: Print bed homes properly, but drops to begin printing

Ok folks.
Downloaded and printed the calibration stl via usb.
Same deal. bed still drops about 5-6mm
I also ran through the getting started guide:
Reset home to .21mm (cold endstop)
Then i made it to the print for calculating the z-offset. . . . . :|

Re: Print bed homes properly, but drops to begin printing

It is a V4 nozzle. That i do know.
I'm at work at the moment, but when i get home i will download that test print and give it a go, and report back.
I appreciate the help very much.
Considering the mods are moderating posts, I'm assuming i wont be able to get any responses this weekend?

I'm not sure Insta. I don't know how the quick start app reacts with previous revisions. If it does not communicate at all with previous revisions, then yes. If it does, I'm back to I'm not sure. And as an aside, i went back and re-measured the Z-stop and it's .10 to .13. Not .3. Not that it matters...
