    • With a regular business card (250g), check the distance between the tip of the nozzle and bed.

    • Adjust the height of the bed with the adjuster ring. You should be able to easily slide the business card between the nozzle and the bed with a little bite. We call it Al dente ;-)

    • After adjusting, alway compress the bolt against the blue frame under the printbed. Gravity is not always enough to settle it after adjusting.

    • Repeat for all 4 corners.

    • YOU ARE DONE!
