Hi… Welcome to the community

Hi there,

It was so great to see you in the store yesterday! One tip I would recommend would be to set your z-offset a little higher than you think it should be, then start the print and adjust the z-offset to what it should be.

The reason for setting the z-offset higher than it should be is to avoid the nozzle running into the bed, I always prefer starting with the nozzle a little bit higher than it should be rather than a little bit lower.

Hello and thx!!!

Hey Matthew!!!

Thx for that tip. Late shipment and says it “should” be here today. Hoping to have time today to get it set up. If not, aiming for the weekend.

Thx Armyscott and hello!!

I’ve been printing something every day since it has arrived. LOL

Wow 3 printers!!! Maybe, sometime, I might get another lol

I’m having wayyyy too much fun.


Welcome to the group - I am from Goderich, ON. I was where you are this time last year. After a full year of trials and errors I now think I have the hang of 90% of it and it has been one great ride after another. You will find many in here that are extremely helpful and very experienced.

Enjoy your ride.

Hi Blenky!!

So far the ride has been fun. I think it may take awhile for me to understand the creating aspect. I have been testing the waters with some free files for now. Maybe sometime soon I will dip into making my own.


Hey Scott!

I haven’t seen you in a while in the store, come stop by when you have a chance. We miss you here!


Welcome the forum. Wish i lived 15 minutes away. Have fun.
