Before I looked at this post, I tried to setup latest Cura myself for M2 printer (older version, Rev D I believe). Everything seemed fine, but when I started printing from cura, it lifted the bed too high, the nozzle ripped the tape and started printing on glass. Not sure if it was trying to lift bed even more, but each following layer was printed on the glass- pushing the previous layer aside. Is it possible that I need to reverse Z axis direction?
With other SW/options everything works like a charm:
Used Repetier Host that used this latest Cura as slicer (I have set only build plate size, nozzle dia and temperatures) and printed directly from repetier Host-no issues. Also, I was able to make successful prints using Slic3r and M2 quick start, via Memory card. Also, used older Cura on another PC, also via mem card and M2 Quick Start.
Thanks, happy printing!

At some point, they reversed where the Z axis "home" position is located. On the Rev. E, the Z limit switch is with the platform all the way down. I'm not sure when they changed, but the older versions of the M2 had the Z limit switch at the top. It sounds like that's where your problem originates.
