Setting in S3D to raise/lower bed on startup?

Post by jcspball13 » Sat May 12, 2018 6:15 pm

I know I have read it before, but cannot for the life of me find it

I read you get the bed close to the nozzle, then use a setting in S3d to fine tune it

Which setting is that?

If your talking about just adjusting the Z gap on a Rev E. printer without using the Makergear software.

First Type M501 to read the EEPROM parameters
Look for the M206 line. (it should look something like M206 X0.0 Y0.0 Z4.20)
You can then adjust it using M206 Z[new value] (add to the number to make the gap smaller e.g. M206 Z4.24 and subtract to make the gap bigger.)
and then M500 to save it to the firmware.

In S3D when editing the process, under the G Code tab, There is a global g code offset setting for the X, Y, and Z axis. adding or subtracting to the Z axis setting should do what you are looking for.
