First we need to load some filament. PLA will work fine.

Set the hotend temp to the high end of the temperature range for your chosen filament.

Or, if you choose to cold extrude, separate the extruder motor from the hot end, and enter M564 H0 to allow the extruder to move while cold.

Load the filament and push it all the way down until it starts to come out the nozzle.

Take your ruler or caliper and your marker.

Measure 110mm from the body of the extruder where the filament enters out along the length of the filament.

It can be tricky to hold the filament straight and line up the ruler accurately.

Mark the filament as close to the 110mm point as possible.
