Note: Move the paper between the nozzle and the worktable surface, if the nozzle is to low the paper won't move, if the nozzle is to high above the surface the paper sheet will be loose. The best configuration is when the piece of paper rubs against the nozzle and it's not too loose.


  • Use arrows to lower or raise the extruder by 0.05mm,

Note: Be very carefull using the 'Move Z-axis' arrows, the movement of the Z-axis is slow and silent, don't press the arrow to many times cause it might damage the work table glass surface.


  • When the nozzle is at the correct height, choose 'Set new Z0' (Visual or paper verification),
