    Hi

    (at the request of Greg, here is a thread for an issue I am having)

    So, when I first got my machine, prebuilt, for better or worse, I followed instructions and printed a Benchy

    I then had a baby (well girlfriend did) and after several months turned on the printer again and tried to print something again, which I had tried before - benchy or something else (it's been another couple of months...)

    but the head kept bashing into the back of the printer, each time I did it

    So - Greg, or anyone, can you help?

    Its the docking position in the S3D script. Put in the correct numbers (work them out by manually moving the printhead with the LCD) and it should be all good.

    Okkkkkk, but how come it is doing it now and was not doing it before?

    Also, now I am running the benchy script again, while waiting for your reply, no crashing, but now the hotend isn't heating up, it just starts the print with zero hotend change, same with the calibration file....

    You need to set the temperatures before doing the print.

    Thanks for your help
