To check, modify, or fine-tune the printer’s home position, a Home Position Calibration Cubes.stl file is printed. The printer must be powered on for the duration of the home position calibration.
See Adjust Parallelism for instructions printing, measuring, and determining the adjustment required for the home position calibration.
Tip: Home position is the lowest point of the build platform along the Z-axis, it is the start position of the build platform for printing.
Always remove the platform before taking the material tray out of the printer!
Failure to do so can result in material dripping down into or onto the printer causing failed builds and damaged equipment!
Adjust Home position
Important: The Automatic Home Position Calibration or Auto Homing is only possible if the printer is equipped with Load cells, therefore enabling the Dry position calibration.
1. Go to Settings > Move & Calibration > Home Calibration > Auto Homing.
→ The following message appears.
2. Press OK.
→ The following screen appears.
Make sure your material tray does not contain material in it. Material residue in the material tray during the calibration will give a false reading to the sensors.
3. Press OK.
→ The platform starts moving to its Dry position.
→ Once the platform finds its Dry position, it starts moving to a Zero position.
→ Dry position calibration has been saved.
