    I have googled a bit now but I can not figure out how to move the nozzles close to the bed.

    I would do this before manual leveling the bed by the screws.

    If you have the motors enabled you won't be able to twist them by hand. But if you disable them from the lcd you can.

    Otherwise connect via a PC or octoprint and send a G92 Z10 when you get home. This will trick the printer into thinking it's at +10 and go up more until you're at the nozzle.

    Though do you have a pro? You should consider upgrading to mesh leveling.

    Awesome. Will try this when I get back from work. The whole point for this is to get the best possible level bed before doing a mesh level. So turning by hand is a no no as I start this procedure by leveling the bed by turning the z rods :)
