The Live Z Adjust is a tool that is used for easy corrections of the 1st three layers of your prints. In this article, we will look at the most common problem associated with it, which is when the value is not storing. 

Live Z adjust not saving 

Most likely this problem is occurring due to the fact that you have skipped a step in the calibration flow. The printer would then display:

"Distance between the tip of the nozzle and the bed surface has not been set yet. Please follow the manual, chapter First steps, section First layer calibration." 

Unless you finish the calibration process. Your printer will not be able to store its Live Z data. Therefore please make sure that calibration flow was followed precisely and finished entirely. 

Steps to follow once your printer has been assembled:

  1. Run "Self Test"
  2. Run Calibrate XYZ
  3. FW version 3.1.0. and newer: simply go to the LCD - Calibration - First layer cal. and launch the 1st layer calibration from there. 
  4. For FW versions till 3.0.12: Print "V2Calibration.gcode!Needs to be finished at least once - after that, you can make additional changes during the start of your prints.! 
    1. If you do not run the "V2Calibration.gcode" the Live Z Adjust value will not be stored.
    2. If you purchased a fully assembled printer and having similar issues, it's best to run through the same steps as above for the kit version.
    3. If the above does not solve the issue, please follow the instructions for a full factory reset and re-run the above steps.
