[title] Leveling the Platform: Part 2
[* black] While the 3D Printing Head is still locked into the Mount, pull the business card out from underneath the nozzle. This should create a slight mark on the business card. Label this mark "Back."
[* black] Send your 3D Printing Head to the front left corner of your BoXZY. The G-code is: ''' G1 X165 Y1''' but you can also use the manual control buttons.
[* black] Slide your business card under the nozzle again. You're going to make a new mark this time, so slide it in a different place than before. Use a 3mm Allen key wrench to raise or lower the bolt in that same corner, as seen in the first image. Adjust this bolt until the mark on the business card matches the first one in depth. Label it "Left."
[* black] Repeat this step for the front right corner of your BoXZY. The G-code to get there is: '''G1 X165 Y165'''. Label the new mark on the business card with "Right."
[* icon_note] There should now be 3 marks on the business card that match in depth for "Back," "Left," and "Right."
[* black] Return to the very first leveling step and repeat the leveling process, including removing and re-inserting the attachment. '''It is important you complete this entire process a minimum of 2 times.''' Once this is done, you have completed the leveling process.
[* icon_reminder] You will need to remove the Leveling Platform and apply a printing surface to it because your 3D prints will not ahere directly to the metal Leveling Platform. We recommend masking tape or [|Kapton Tape]. [|BuildTak] is one option made specifically for this purpose.
