Manual Leveling

Manual leveling is a procedure used to restore the flatness of the print bed with respect to the printer reference.
Leveling is part of the machine’s calibration values and the right value is essential for good operation.
This value is automatically saved by the machine during autocalibration.

In machines not compatible with the self-calibration system it is necessary to use the Change height procedure before leveling the table, to obtain a correct calibration.

When a floor is not leveled correctly, various problems can be encountered, as shown in the figure.
This can cause detachment in parts where the printer reference is higher than the real one and collisions where the printer reference is lower than the real one.

The leveling of the plate is based on the Cartesian principle of the plane passing through three points.
As you can see in the figure, there are three adjustment points arranged around the plate according to the vertices of an equilateral triangle (POSITION 1,2,3)
By properly adjusting each of these points with respect to the printer reference (physically represented by the nozzle), the correct flatness for printing is obtained.
There is also a fourth central position (POSITION 0) that is not adjustable but sensitive to other adjustments. It is useful during the leveling process

Each printer has different handles or screws for the regulation of the bed leveling.

WASP 40100 Clay: When printing directly on the floor it’s not needed to level the machine.
Use abundant flow values of the first layer for ensuring a good adhesion.
