Updated leveling process


I finally had a chance to install the new FW 1.16 and re-level the vat using @Apotessar 's excel sheet !. That method worked fast and awesome. got left front and left rear to exactly 10.8 and right rear to 10.74 and right front to 10.86 I believe this is showing the Vat level not being totally planar . these numbers look good to me and the piller test came out awesome. I used my calipers to visualize what 40 microns looks like, seems acceptable tolerance to me .


So, dumb question from a brand spankin’ new Moaite here.

I accidently printed the 4 Moai heads instead of the bolts on my SD card. They turned out great out of the box (literally no leveling adjustments made). On a hunch, I grabbed my calipers and took measurements.

Now, granted, they weren’t numbered so I don’t know which is which:


These are all within the 0.3 tolerance of the bolt looking things. Should I really bother with that step?


stick with the leveling pegs as it is much easier to get accurate measurement and faster to print

Doesnt matter. Apparently it can be within a mm accordi,zertng to some users. …


yes, it can. but best to be 10.6-10.8 for good adhesion without tearing at PDMS too quickly


Here is a spreadsheet I created to help level and “dial in” the cura settings. I hope it helps.



very helpful. PDMS vat has good tolerance so you would be ok as long as it is between 10.6 - 10.8. 10.9mm would work for small prints
