Jason Znack

# Ensure that the Z offset in G31 in config.g is set to 0, these steps will be used to measure this actual offset. (send G31 Z0 to set it to 0).
# Use the X and Y jog buttons to position the nozzle over the centre of the bed
# Jog the nozzle down until it is just touching the bed or just gripping a sheet of paper. If you can't get it low enough, send G92 Z10 to trick the firmware into thinking the nozzle is higher than it actually is.
# SendOnce you have the nozzle touching the bed, send command G92 Z0 to tell the firmware that the head is at Z=0
# Jog the nozzle down until it is just touching the bed or just gripping a sheet of paper. If you can't get it low enough, send G92 Z10 to trick the firmware into thinking the nozzle is higher than it actually is.
# SendOnce you have the nozzle touching the bed, send command G92 Z0 to tell the firmware that the head is at Z=0
