Re: Heuristic (AI) calibration for delta printers on Smoothi

I don't use a probe so I'm not to familiar with that. Maybe you have to set an offset somewhere.
For now just bring your nozzle down to a paper and set your z height M306 Z0 then m500.
Regarding the g29 I also get two different values. I'm sure there a reason for it.

Re: Generated Circles in MatterSlice are horrible!?!

Yes, for all the tests, using all the "slicers", the same .STL model was used. Same settings for each "slicer" was used as well to keep things the same, ie: 0.200mm layer heights, etc... Here are the screenshots of the part and the export settings to .STL from within SolidWorks. ...
