Re: Where can I download the older versions?

If they give you the good version that works, you won't help test the new versions as they try and fix the mess! If you just bought it, request a refund!

Re: First layer height setting

Thanks Doug, it is a real shame this type of information is not properly documented for each and every setting in the software and updated with each release. Thank you very much for the full and properly detailed explanation of the Gcode page. The Mod should make you post a sticky! And yes this answ...
