Move the head and printbed in a way that printhead is in the corner.
With a regular business card (250g), check the distance between the tip of the nozzle and bed.
Adjust the height of the bed with the adjuster ring. You should be able to easily slide the business card between the nozzle and the bed with a little bite. We call it Al dente ;-)
After adjusting, alway compress the bolt against the blue frame under the printbed. Gravity is not always enough to settle it after adjusting.
Repeat for all 4 corners.
YOU ARE DONE!
