Leveling the right print head vs the left

Postby chrisgr99 » Wed Jul 08, 2020 2:18 pm

For the Pro2 are there instructions on how the level the right print head relative to the left one?

I have the video on leveling the left head but I can't find how to adjust the relative height of the right head vs the left after changing print heads.

Yes, part of the instructions for "installing the hotend"
https://support.raise3d.com/Pro2-Series ... 4-289.html

In a summary, you set your basic Z gap using the LEFT nozzle and feeler gauge
Once set, then loosen the right nozzle mounting, put the feeler gauge under the nozzle in situ, tighten the hotend mounting clamp.

In all honestly, no different than the method for the N series- just minor difference in how it clamps.
"The process" is the same.
The idea being, you use left as a reference. You get the bed adjusted for the left nozzle so that the bed homes and parks just right with the feeler gauge for the left nozzle. Then without moving the bed, then loosen the right hotend mounting, slide the feeler in between the nozzle and bed, and tighten the right hotend now in situ and they should now be the same basic height.

You mean using the right nozzle to to level the bed or set the Z-offset or calibrate the height of right nozzle to match with left?
