Help identifying calibration diagrams
I am calibrating an MK3S+, and it's time to print a zigzag test pattern. The LCD says, "Rotate the knob until you reach the optimal height. Check the images in the handbook. (Calibration chapter.)"
 
Can you advise me on how to contine-setupfrom here?
 
 
Thanks,

RE: Help identifying calibration diagrams

You've reached a point where the built in test is not ideal. It is best to print a large area - one that allows time to make adjustments.

The built in test works to get filament sticking to the print sheet, and must be completed, but it's not great for making fine adjustments that are needed.  Here's my print test circle (in the zip) and a photo of one of the tests I printed.  The print is almost perfect, but a close inspection will show a couple fine gaps that shouldn't be there. So I eventually went a little lower.

Once read the instructions, and while the 75x75 is running skip to pg 40 and look at Joan Tabbs photos/description of what to look for in the first layer.

Tank you very much!...
