[title] Leveling the Platform: partPart 1
[title] Leveling the Platform: partPart 1
[* icon_note] BoXZY uses ''3-point leveling'' to make sure the nozzle moves perfectly parallel to the platform during X and Y movements. This is a very important initial setup step that only needs to be repeated if the bolts are moved.
[* black] While the Attachment Mount is still empty, use the BoXZY Interface to move the mount above the middle, back bolt on the platform.
[* icon_note] The G-code that will position BoXZY where you want it is: '''G1 X1 Y82.5'''. You an also use the manual control buttons.
[* icon_reminder] Remove your ''3D Printing Head'' from the white box marked "3D Printing." Always pick the attachment up by its handle.
[* icon_reminder] You'll usually want to use a business card to level your platform, but if this is your very first time doing it, follow the guide steps using a very thick, flat piece of cardboard instead. This reduces your risk of crashing the nozzle. You'll repeat the leveling procedure with a business card after your first try with cardboard.
[* black] Place the business card directly underneath the Attachment Mount on the Leveling Platform. There should be no tape on the platform during leveling.
[* red] Unlock the Attachment Mount lever. Insert your 3D Printing Head so that the nozzle sits directly on top of the business card, as shown in the second image and the third image with cardboard. Lock your 3D Printing Attachment with the lever, as shown in the first image. Adjust the lever as necessary. '''Do not plug the cable in at this time.'''
[* icon_caution] Always verify that your Z is at its home position before inserting the attachment. Otherwise scary noises and damage can occur! The nozzle should be positioned in the Attachment Mount for leveling as shown in the second image.
