And that 'Auto Cal' feature isn't even in the manual hahaha, how strange.

Straight out of the manual:
For this procedure, you will need the Gap Gauge from your tools.

The main reason a plate will crash into the jets while printing (thus causing a cartridge jam) is because the z-gap was set too tight.

The z-gap is the distance between the print tip and the print pad.
- A z-gap tighter than this will not allow the plastic to come out smoothly and will jam the cartridge.
- A z-gap too loose will not lay down the filament properly, and could mess a whole print job.
- For a good z-gap, you have to make sure that you can slide through the gap gauge between the print tip and print pad, and you can move it around freely, but it cannot go past the white sticker on the center of the gauge.

Auto Gap doesn't always set the right z-gap for the printer, so it is always important to check and make sure that it is correct.

For a manual set up, try the following:

From the Home screen, go to Set Up → Calibrate → Auto Cal.

Auto Cal sets the range that the printer uses for Auto Gap.

Cal 1 value is going to be the z-gap value. Adjust the z-gap using the gap gauge and the arrows on the screen to raise/lower the plate to the right distance.

After setting the z-gap for Cal 1, tap on the empty value next to Cal 2.

The printer will set the Cal 2 value automatically. After it is done calculating, it will show you a value for Cal 2.

This value should be somewhere between the range of -11 and -3.

After it's done, press the check mark to save these settings and exit out.


While still on the Set Up menu, go to Auto Level.

The printer will first run Auto Level to make sure that the plate is leveled.

After it's successful, it will then run Auto Gap.

After Auto Gap shows as successful, check with the gap gauge to make sure the z-gap is right.

If it's not, select the ADJUST option and set it manually.


Save these settings and now you should be able to make good prints!
