The Nozzle Offset a quick way to modify the nozzle height value while keep the original value unchanged. Changing the Nozzle Offset will not affect the Nozzle Height saved in the software. However it will result in adjustment of the "final" nozzle height value used for slicing.
The value of Nozzle Offset can be positive or negative. The final Nozzle Height will be the value stored in the software plus the Nozzle Offset.
- Add positive offset will make the nozzle closer to platform, while adding negative offset will make it further away from platform.
- The value of Nozzle Offset will not be changed, or reset automatically. Once a value is set, it will be always there. Offset is useful for compensating consistent error in the measurement of nozzle height. eg. User found auto nozzle height measurement is always too close to platform, so add a -0.2mm will compensate for this error and able to print directly after auto calibration.
