[title] Leveling the Platform: part 1
[* icon_note] BoXZY uses a ''3 point leveling method'' to make sure the nozzle moves perfectly parallel to the platform during X and Y movements. This is a ''very'' important initial setup step, it should very rarelyrarely, if ever, need to be repeated

[* blue] While the attachment mount is still empty, use the BoXZY Interface to '''move''' it nearly above the middle bolt that is towards the back on the Leveling Platform.
[* icon_note] The Gcode that will position the BoXZY is: G1 X1 Y82.5
[* orange] '''Remove''' your ''3D Printing Head'' from the white box marked '''3D Printing''', use the handle at the top of the 3D Printing Head when handling the attachment.
[* icon_reminder] The Leveling Procedure will ask you to use a Business card to level your platform. If this is your very first time leveling the platform follow the guide using a very thick, flat piece of cardboard in place of the business card. Then repeat the leveling process with the business card. This eliminate the risk of crashing your nozzle during leveling
[* black] Place a Business Card directly underneath the attachment mount on the Leveling Platform. The images show a taped platform, there should not be tape on the platform during leveling.
[* red] Unlock the lever for the attachment mount and Insert your 3D Printing HeadAttachment into it, allowing the 3D Printing Nozzle to sit directly on top of the Business Card. Lock your 3D Printing Headattachment into the attachmentmount with the lever. Adjust the lever as necessary. ''Do not plug in the cable in at this time''
[* icon_caution] Always verify that your Z is at its home position before inserting the 3D print head. Otherwise scary noises and damage can occur. The Nozzle should be positioned in the attachment mount for leveling as it is seen in the second image for levelingimage.
