SV04 Bed Leveling Guide

1. Inspect the right extruder at first.

  • Loose the 4 screws on both sides with H1.5 Allen screwdriver (Just loose, don't unscrew completely. If you do not know what is the appropriate condition you can tighten it first, and then loosen it for 1~2 turns to make sure the right side extruder can be adjustable up and down freely)

  • Rotate the black leveling knob on the top of right extruder to check if the slide board can be adjusted to the top or the bottom. (If the slide board cannot be adjusted to the top or the bottom, please adjust according to SV04 Right Extruder Knob Adjustment Guide. You cannot do the next step until the slide board can be adjusted to the top or the bottom.)

* The top and the bottom position refer to the pic on the left.

* If the position can be reached please adjust the slide board of the right side extruder to the middle.
