Always have to baby step

  • I'm sure there is a simple answer to this question, and I did try to find it before just posting here, but I could not discern the answer from the documentation.

    I have a smart effector, and no matter how many times I run G32 and G29, my hotend won't extrude unless i babystep it up in Z about .400mm I can look and see its really squished down on the bed and obviously no filament will come out until it comes up.

    What configuration should I change to make it babystep up after auto-bed calibration?
    or do I need to tell it that the bed probe is .4 below true Z = 0?

    Or do I need to tell my slicer to print the first layer at .4 Z-height?

    thank you.

  • see
    Section: Calibrate the Z probe trigger height

  • ah thank you very much. I don't know how I missed that before.
