Leveling the build bed

Leveling the build bed is a crucial process for achieving high-quality 3D prints. Here’s how to do it step by step:

NOTE: Make sure the nozzle and print bed are heated to the recommended print temperatures before starting.

PRINTER PLACEMENT: Make sure the printer is placed on a flat, stable surface. This is crucial to ensure good leveling.

MENU ACCESS: Enter the printer’s menu. This procedure may vary depending on the printer model; Then, consult the manual specific to your device for step-by-step instructions.

NOZZLE & HOB HEATING: In the menu, go to the “Advanced” section and then “Temperatures”. Set the nozzle and build bed temperatures to the recommended settings for the material you are using. Wait for it to heat up completely.

MANUAL LEVELING: In the menu, go to the “Prepare” section and then “Manual Leveling”. Select “Location” to begin the leveling process.

FOLLOW THE SEQUENCE: Follow the sequence of steps carefully for leveling. Typically, the sequence is numbered as “01 02 03 01 02 03 00”. This indicates the order in which you will need to adjust the leveling points.

ADJUST THE DISTANCE BETWEEN NOZZLE AND BED: Use the knob at the base of the printer or the Phillips screws (in the case of the DeltaWASP 4070) on the heating plate to adjust the distance between the nozzle and the print bed. The goal is to achieve a distance of about 0.1 mm between the nozzle and the bed. Proper spacing is crucial for successful printing.

TEST WITH A SHEET OF PAPER: A good way to check the correct distance is to place a sheet of paper between the nozzle and the print bed. Try sliding it back and forth. The paper should slide without bending, but it should feel some slight friction. Keep adjusting until you reach this feeling.
