Automatic calibration process - Dual PRO Extruder


Note: Each time after changing the Single plastic extruder to Dual PRO extruder and contrariwise it is recommended to repeat the automatic calibration process.

Note: Before performing the automatic calibration make sure the worktable is clean and prepared.

Note: See the toolhead changing process before mounting the DualPRO extruder on the machine.

Note: During the automatic calibration process the printer is heating up!

Note: Each one of those lines is printed on a slightly different height (+/- 0.05mm) with the middle line being the result of the automatic calibration process.


  • Look at the printed lines and select the best one by pressing their corresponding numbers visible on the screen and 'APPLY' your choice,
