Once you swap the hot-end out you can click the gear icon in the top right corner and then click maintainece and re-run the offset calibration for the left hot end and the XY offsets for the printer as well.

Tx Ryan helps a lot. I need to insert filament as well. Can this only be PLA ?? I don’t use PLA, in case of I need to stock some PLA for calibration

Yes, at this time we only advise running the offset calibration menus with Raise3D Premium PLA.

Steven thanks it’s clear to have some stock PLA just for calibration. In your reaction “at this time…..” gives me hope in near future it no longer needed and I can adjust filament and bed temps before calibration.

The suggestion to allow the calibration prints to use a different temperature has been sent over to our development team.
