    Okay, not quite a manual but I'll take that. Move freely is an important change from the actual manual as well. And no, I knew the manual never stated this because I looked for this everywhere. ...

    Unfortunately the manual doesn't take into account our DIY mods.

    A lot of people are missing the fact that Auto Cal and the initial "test gap" -are- related.

    Auto Cal is used to set a default gap before the Cube3 fine-tunes the value. Even then, it relies heavily on the CAL1 setting.

    Knowing this, you can set the CAL1 value to something much greater...

    Confirmed that the Cube 3 doesn't care about the writing or the surface of the orange LokBuild with black text. It levels, calibrates, and gaps perfectly.

    Complete the calibration process :)

    A lot of systems went out that crashes the build plates.
    Knowing how to successfully complete this function is what resets the home location.
