Second nozzle sits higher than first. Is this right?

Post by Patrick_MakeThings » Thu May 04, 2017 9:03 pm

Hi guys, I'm new here.

I have a MakerGear M2 with dual heads and have been printing well so far with the M2 on a singular nozzle using PLA.
I am ready to begin setting up prints to test out the second nozzle, however it appears to sit about 1mm higher than the 1st nozzle. Is this correct? If so, is there a reason for this? If not, how can this be corrected?
I am looking to test prints with the second nozzle using PLA and also the softer polymer support material. Just want to be sure the second nozzle is indeed at the correct height before continuing on.

Thanks in advance!

I don't own a dual, but I think they should be the same distance off the build plate. It's for an older rev of the printer, but see this thread.

If you intend to print the two different filaments on top of each other, the nozzles have to be the same height. If you are just using one, it is OK to have the one not printing higher.
