Adjusting Z axis distance from bed during print (via software)
Tips & Tricks
I've tried a search but i can' t found an answer...is possible to adjust the Z axis distance from the bed during print? If i load the gcode directly via usb on the printer i can do it...but via software Repetier-host (or into server web page)?
I gues you mean babystepping to adjust position without changing real Z position.
How do you do it with direct upload? On display lcd? That function should also work if you print over host/server.
The server touchscreen also has a babystep page (reachable form status page) that does this.
And of course you can also manually send the command to change it. In most firmwares it is M290 S<distance>.
Sorry if i resume this post but now that i've a working 3d printer, i need to understand this.
So i recap the question:
when i start a print via SD card, if i see that the Z.axis offset isn't right (because the extrusion is too far from bed or viceversa), i can adjust it in real time via the printer software directly from the screen (function "tune"). But if i load via repetier, i can't do it via printer screen either via repetier (because in host and also in server all the command in control page are disabled).
You mean the tune entry is not available through server print? Otherwise you can use that of course.
Because you should be close to printer when doing quick z adjustments it is only implementes in the server touch interface. If you have none and no user in server defined you can open it on mobile/pc of course if you have pro version with
or send the command manually. Put it into quickcommands for quick access e.g. as Z Correct up 0.1
Yes...i have PRO version.
no the tune entry isn't avaiable during a print not loaded via SDcard.
Ok, i've understood. I'll try with mobile app and i create a quick command also...ty a lot.
