Place a folded piece of paper between the nozzle and print surface. Lower the Z axis in 0.1mm increments until the nozzle grips onto the paper.

Send the M114 command again to report the Z-axis position.

The amount that you lowered the z axis by is your Z-offset.

In this example case M114 reported the new z-position to be -1 when lowered to grip the paper. There for the Z-offset is 1mm.

Enter M206 Z(value)

As in this example case the Z-offset was found to be 1, we enter "M206 Z1".

Send an M500 command to save it to the printers memory.
