I had planned my first print for past saturday March 1st 2014 but I failed. I probably got wrong the calibrations points because, although the printer moved correctly, all the time it was touching the bed. Thank God I was testing movement with no plastic and I avoided making a mess. I hope I can try again today.

Even if you are touching slightly on the first layer, you can usually save the print. I would just turn the flowrate down until the hot end has some clearance.

Thanks Nicholas. It's not the case,though. Strangely in almost all layers it was touching. I saw a lot of vertical movement, which makes me think there is some miscalibration in the steps/mm.

By the way, how do you turn the flowrate down on the fly?

Repetier-Host has a slider. Also you can send a M221 command. ("M221 S10" would stand for 10% of what the file says.)

@Nicholas,

I should know this, but I don't remember. What is the nozzle size of the beta machines?

Thanks!
