✔︎ [Bug Report] Nozzle offset - which direction? [SOLVED]

Post by Zappo » Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:39 pm

Hello,

if I add a nozzle offset, in which direction does +/- go?

As it show the bed-heigth + offset, a positive value should decrease the distance from the nozzle to the bed.

Am I assuming this right?

Hi guys,

I really hope that someone can explain this Nozzle offset part!

I did auto leveling for e.g I got 208.06, I adjusted it to 208.04 to leave more distance between the nozzle and the bed. Should I add the same value in the nozzle offset? are they related?

Can one of the TierTime support folks please answer this? I have a Cetus, and have levelled the bed properly with paper method. Now I am applying painter's tape and want to have nozzile little higher to accommodate that 0.1mm paper thickness. Should I enter +0.1 or -0.1?

Hi mvadu,

To make sure I understand your question correctly, you would like to know how to adjust the nozzle height after you apply tapes on the build plate, right?

And I felt you need to subtract 0.1mm because your build plate is actually a bit higher with the extra thickness from the tape. Unless you want the print stick onto the build plate extremely well.

If you want to increase the nozzle height, just plus 0.1mm.
If you want to decrease the nozzle height, just subtract -0.1mm.
The final nozzle height your printer gets is the result of (offset value) + (nozzle height).

Hopefully, this may help you a bit.

Elaine
