How do I manually level my bed?
- Start by tightening down all the screws so you have more room to work with.
- Home the Z axis of your 3D printer.
- Jog the printer above each screw, putting a piece of paper between the nozzle and the bed.
- Loosen the screw until the paper is getting squished between the nozzle and the bed only slightly.
Do I have to level bed every time?
When is it a good time to level? Some people like to level their bed after every single print. While this ensures perfect quality, it is definitely not necessary.

Tighten down all the screws at each corner, so you have enough room to loosen them later.
How does a creality bed leveling kit work?
The auto bed leveling kit uses a BLTouch sensor to detect exactly how far away the nozzle is from the bed. By measuring this distance at different points on the bed, the printer can automatically adjust its Z height to account for any variations in the bed leveling.
What’s the thread pitch of a bed leveling screw?
I measured mine with a thread gauge and it says the pitch is 0.7 mm. So, as the stock adjustment wheels have 14 bumps around their circumference, turning by one of those is an adjustment of exactly 0.05 mm (assuming no backlash).
How do you level a 3D printer bed?
This is the recommended tool for leveling your average, everyday 3d printer that does not have automated mesh leveling. Preheat your Printer to the print temperatures. This includes both the bed AND the nozzle. When the bed and nozzle get hot, they expand and will get closer together. Home your Z axis.
