Glass Plate on the Mecreator 2

Post by Moriis » Sat Apr 22, 2017 8:34 pm

Hello all,

ich have i new 3D-Printer (Mecreator 2) an i am new in 3D Printing.

The Aluminium Bed on my ne printer is not plan/flat an i want to put an 3mm Glass-Plate on it.
The Glass-Plate is very good for me, for PLA it is OK and i can change 2 Glass-Plates between
2 prints very quickly.

My Question is:
I put the Glass-Plate (180x180x3mm) on my Aluminium Bed with small folding clips.
That is perfect and the Extruder have enough space to work. My Problem is, that the
Nozzle is too close on the Glass-Plate. When i press "Auto Home" the Z-Axis is too far up.
When i Print with 0.2mm i have little problems but when i print with 0.05mm the Nozzle
scratches over the glass-Plate.

I leveling the Bed with thy screws, but this is not all what i need to do.

Can someone explain to me what I need to do to adjust the height of the axis to the glass plate?

Many Thanks to you, Matthias

Im thinking in buying a glass plate for my printer too but I would like to know if you were able to solve the problems that you describe and how you did it, please.

Thank you in advance.

You can just print a spacer so that it touches the endstop first.
