Re: Calibration help

hmm, probably has something to do with the projection and lens curvature. might try stretching the projection grid out a little at those corners by 0.2ish mm to compensate for it?

Re: Calibration help

Looks to be a standalone machine that you just transfer the Contour files over via usb or WiFi.

Re: During print failure platform is in low position

Do you have Creation Workshop installed? Whenever I have had this happen I close out of Contour, open Creation Workshop, connect to the printer, select the control tab, and click the arrow to move the Z axis up.
