    Oops. I was looking for "Default steps per millimetre", and posted the comment to the wrong article rather than this one https://printrbot.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202227454-Default-Steps-Per-Millimeter

    But I found a calibration tutorial which provided an example of how to work that out.
    Cheers,

    The product page lists an increased build volume of 8" x 6".  So, that would be...

    I have simple metal with the heated bed and x axis upgrade installed. What command would I need to send?

    Hi K-man,

    You'll need to set your M211 X value to reflect your bed's width.

    Did a M501 view settings command and saw that M211 PB Smalls LE saved settings were X:173 Y:150 Z:148,M212: X0.00Y:0.00Z:-0.80(probe offset) my bedsize is 10.5longx6.5 wide (edge to edge) but I know it’s less that this due to the 4 screws screws holding bed. But in cura I have it set x,y,z at 150 for all. Is this wrong settings I should have in cura? At 150 for all axis. Should t my cura x,y,z be the numbers above? But I am using the supplied 6x6 painters tape squares on buildplate at the moment when I run out I’ll be using the roll of painters tape I bought on Amazon’s for bed covering cut to size. When z “homes” to limit switch it grinds then stops after a print job is complete not any other time in when job is started to print temp archived (end code) could the grind be due to the wrong settings above saved on board with the z home set at 148, HELP PLEASE? Belts all look fine no damage on them to speak of.
