I have a question? Is the home position and the zero position the same?
I am assuming those should be the same.
I have been experimenting with setting the zero position on my Prime printer. Being able to set the zero position is inconsistent. It seems that small increments of a couple of .1mm changes and then set the zero position works. However, if I move 3 mm up and then set the zero position, it returns to the old position when I push home. I want to change the home position (zero position) so that I can install a WhamBam magnet sheet to the build plate. That will add about 3 mm to the bottom of the build plate. Right now there is not enough room to install it (the added depth would probably break the lcd screen). I would have expected that when I set the new zero position to higher, it would become the new home position but it is not working that way. Any suggestions? I suppose I could drill out the holes in the retainer (used for levelling) so that there is more room for the build plate to move and accommodate the Wham Bam sheet. However, that seems like a very difficult approach that might wreck the build plate.
Do you have any suggestions?
The metal spatula that came with the printer scratched the build plate a lot before I noticed what was happening (it was slightly bent in one corner). The Wham Bam plate will make it easier to remove prints and there will be no need for the metal spatula.
