Re: Bug while generating support

We're going to need your factory file to be able to debug what's going on. There may be an issue with your shape file, it may be an issue with the auto-support generation, it may be .........get my point?

File dropdown menu==>Save Factory File.

Re: Bed-nozzle height

Don't get hung up on getting accuracy when setting the bed to nozzle distance... Set it using a "known" gauge, and then use the Global-Z adjustment (GCode tab of settings) to fine tune the gap so that you get good adhesion of prints without getting the "elephants foot" effect, where plastic is squid...
