MatterControl 2.0 Calibration - Print Leveling

The most important step in setting up your printer is proper calibration. In this article, we will briefly explain the Printer Setup & Calibration feature for "Print Leveling" that is built into MatterControl 2.0.

If you have just connected your new printer to MatterControl, you will be prompted with a Printer Setup & Calibration window which gives you two options, Z Calibration and Print Leveling. If you do not have Print Leveling as an option, your printer may not support automatic bed leveling or you have not enabled that in your printer features within MatterControl -- please navigate to Printer > Features > Hardware > Has Z Probe and enable it. Additionally, if you need to re-calibrate your printer, you may find this window by navigating to Controls > Calibration and select the compass icon.

Select the option "Run Print Leveling" and go through each of steps one-by-one until completion. If you want to change the probing grid for the Print Leveling feature, you will need to exit the Printer Setup & Calibration window and navigate to Printer > Features > Leveling > Leveling Solution, then make a selection from the drop-down menu. For Pulse users, it is recommended to run a 10x10 Mesh. Below are reference images for each of the steps involved in this feature.
