Revision to Using mesh bed compensation

Jason Znack

* If your printer is Cartesian or CoreXY, get the bed as level as you can by manual or automatic mechanical adjustment. See [[Bed levelling using multiple independent Z motors]] and [[Using the manual bed levelling assistant]]. Bed compensation increases wear on the Z axis moving parts, so you don't want to be doing more of it than necessary.
* If your printer is a Delta, calibrate it first (see [[Calibrating a delta printer]]). Bed compensation is not a good substitute for accurate calibration.
-* If you are using a Z probe, make sure it is correctly configured and working. This includes the trigger height and the X and Y offsets of the probe relative to the nozzle. Refer to the M558 and G31 commands in the [[GCode]]s page.
-* If you don't have a Z probe, set type P0 in your M558 command.
+* If you are using a Z probe, make sure it is correctly configured and working. This includes the trigger height and the X and Y offsets of the probe relative to the nozzle. Refer to the Z Probe calibration page. [[Test and calibrate the Z probe]]
+* If you don't have a Z probe, set type P0 in your M558 command for manual probing via jog buttons.
