Leveling the Build Plate

    How to Level

    To level the build plate, choose Settings > Calibration > Level Build Plate on the control panel of the MakerBot Replicator.

    The assisted leveling routine works best with a clean, flat build plate. Wrinkles in your blue tape or plastic debris on the build plate or nozzle can interfere with the sensor in the Smart Extruder. Make sure your build plate tape is smooth before you start the leveling process, and wipe the build plate down with a clean cloth if necessary.

    The control panel screen will guide you through the assisted leveling routine. At each stage, you will be directed to turn one of the leveling knobs on the underside of the build platform.
