    3D Printing issue - using a Creality Ender 5 Plus

    Hi Fellow PrintersI am new to 3D printing and got myself a Creality Ender 5 Plus due to its volume size, and good reviews.Currently I still have not been able to print my first model due to the distance between the nozzle and the print bed, and have some questions which if I can find the answers I hope to get my printer going:Current problem seems to be that the print bed leveling:So my questions are:1)How far away should the print nozzle be from the bed for PLA?2)The BL touch when doing a auto bed leveling always levels the bed with a 2 mm gap from the nozzle, is there any way to fix that?Any other suggestions to help a beginner get started.

    first, manually level the bed using the printer paper method. second, set your z offset for the bltouch accordingly in your menus, don't forget to save the new setting

    never measured, but around 0.1-0.2mm would seem about right.
    I use 90gsm paper.

    Sounds like your bltouch might not be fitted right, can you adjust how it's fixed to the print head.

    Got my fingers crossed of the ender 5 - so far we've had very few people with problems with them.
