I have a Wanhao i3 plus clone, monoprice maker plus. At least, that is what I was told . Anyhoo, I was printing parts out with only small issues, but still usable, just messy. So, I read a bunch of stuff and decided to upgrade my printer with a few basic necessities. After putting it all back together, the bed will no longer level.
Problem: With the glass on, I can get three corners to level but the final one shows a huge gap. This leads me to believe that the nozzle has some software offsets that prevent it from properly leveling. However, I have no idea how to access those or whether this is the true culprit. The final corner is pushed down by the pressure of the three other corners and makes the final nut so loose that I am unable to align it.
Micro Swiss all metal conversion kit
Sturdy aluminium base plate (perfectly level and flat, although I did have to flop the printer on it’s side to access the panel underneath so that I could remove the heating leads. But, everything seemed to have gone fine.)
Boroglass plate made for the printer with beveled corners (also, perfectly flat.)
Thermo sheet between the bed and glass.
PS: The standard build plate is also perfectly level and flat. No bending or bowing.
Upgrade to the firmware to the ADVi3app (I had to remove the front plate which means I had to remove the y bars. But they seem to be kosher as well. Well aligned.
Enough words from me. Commence
