When you install the 3D printer for the first time or you have moved your printer to another location please always calibrate the print bed. Make sure the print bed is empty and cleaned. The nozzle is clean without any residue of filament. Heat up the bed to 60 degrees by clicking the LCD screen on the BED heater icon.

 

Click on the active temperature box below this heater and set the temperature to 60 (select temperature by clicking + until desired temperature is reached and click SET afterwards). You can also use the web interface to set the bed temperature to 60 degrees. 14 Attach the probe unit by clicking in the triangles on the printhead (needs a bit of force).

 

Turn the knobs of the probe unit just a little so it’s secured to the printhead.

Connect the probe cable to the main cable of the machine.

Use the LCD screen on the Bed Level icon or in the web interface on the Auto Delta Calibration button. Please make sure the 3D printer has reached the bed temperature and the bed is clean!

The printhead will go down and perform some calibration points on the bed. This will take around 1 minute to complete. When the calibration is done the printhead will go up and  calibration is done.

To make the calibration more accurate you can redo this step multiple times. The machine will try to get better each try.
