HELP Nozzle height

Post by Joren » Sun Nov 10, 2013 1:36 pm

Recently i have purchased a UP mini 3d printer. i have already successfully printed several objects.
However, now the printer requests a nozzle height. how do i determine the accurate height?

a quick and easy setup is to fold a piece of paper, place that between your print nozzle, and the perf board, set gap so paper can slide under, (~0.2mm) then set that as nozzle height...good idea is to heat up bed and nozzle, then set height... then re-test, to see how the raft is to small and the feed stepper will skip on the filament...too much and it won't stick to the perf board...

hope this helps
