To automatically level the bed of the 3D printer one has to add some adjustments to the G-code of the script. To do that: the G29 command has to be added at the beginning of the file. It will “tell” the printer that it has to automatically level the bed.

How do I install a BLTouch?
- Step 1: Access your printer’s motherboard.
- Step 2: Remove z-axis limit switch.
- Step 3: Connect and thread BL-Touch cable.
- Step 4: Mount the BL-Touch on the Nozzle Assembly.
- Step 5: Update Motherboard Firmware.
- Step 6: Determine and Set Z-offset.
How do I add BLTouch to Cura settings?
- In Cura, click on Ultimaker Cura at the very top-left of your screen.
- Go to Preferences > Printers > [Name of your Ender 3 V2 Printer]
- Click Machine Settings.
- Under “Start G-code,” add G29 ; Auto bed-level (BL-Touch) below line G28 .
What is G28 G code?
G28 G-code – On a CNC mill, G28 means “go to the recorded origin point in the machine coordinates workspace”. The machine coordinates are the position of the machine relative to the point at which the endstops are hit.
What is G28 code?
The G28 code returns all axes (X, Y, Z, A and B) simultaneously to the machine zero position when no axis is specified on the G28 line. Alternatively, when one or more axes locations are specified on the G28 line, G28 will move to the specified locations and then to machine zero.
What is G29 code?
G29: Bed Leveling (Bilinear) G29: Bed Leveling (Unified) G30: Single Z-Probe. G31: Dock Sled. G32: Undock Sled.
What is G92 G code?
G92 G-code – G92 means “set an offset in all coordinate systems”. The machine coordinates are the position of the machine relative to the point at which the endstops are hit. This is by opposition to the workspace coordinates, which are the coordinates you use to position a job you want to do.
What is M501?
M501 – Load Settings from EEPROM – Loads all previously saved settings from EEPROM and immediately applies them. This can be also used as UNDO of the settings changes you made. No need to save them as they are taken from EEPROM. Requires EEPROM_SETTINGS enabled.
How do I change Gcode on BLTouch?
Adding BL Touch leveling to Gcode – Open printer manager and select your printer profile and open machine settings. You will see a window that lets you add a custom Gcode before each print. Save the settings and you are ready to go!
What is bilinear leveling?
If you’re unfamiliar with bilinear leveling, it’s a leveling system that’s most commonly used with an automatic bed leveling (ABL) sensor, like a BLTouch. This system uses an ABL sensor to measure the distance from the probe to the bed surface at different points across the build plate.
How do you level a mesh bed?
- Use G29 S0 to get the current status and mesh.
- Use G29 S1 to move to the first point for Z adjustment.
- Adjust Z so a piece of paper can just pass under the nozzle.
- Use G29 S2 to save the Z value and move to the next point.
- Repeat steps 3-4 until completed.
