Trying to calibrate after a Duet swap into my Metal Max. My height map is screwy.

I don't have a probe yet, so I'm doing the paper thing. I wanted to do FSRs, but I have the Tricklaser metal frame which is discontinued and I don't think I can get the adapters anymore, though maybe I can figure out a solution myself.

Anyway, I noticed that my print's first layer was inconsistent and not even getting squished at a few parts. So I did the mesh grid compensation (manually) and got a concerning heat map back.

And I'm not really sure where to go from here. Maybe I screwed something up when I used Repetier Config Tool?

Are you sure that your points are correct? that sharp edge downwards suggests there's something wrong with the Z-probe (or another inconsistent factor)
