The procedure that follows gives instructions on how to calibrate the Z-axis on the AON M2+ (CE), AON M2+ (R-NZ) and AON M2+ machines that have the Klipper-based firmware.
Estimated time: 30 minutes
The instructions that follow are for the AON M2+ (CE), AON M2+ (R-NZ) and AON M2+ machines that have the Klipper-based firmware only.
Refer to Z Offset Calibration (M2+ Marlin) AON M2+ (CE), AON M2+ (R-NZ) and AON M2+ machines that have the marlin-based firmware.
Refer to Z Offset Calibration for the AON-M2 and AON M2-2020 machines.

Make sure that there are no prints on the build surface. Remove print(s) before the procedure that follows is started. Failure to do so can cause a collision and cause damage to the machine component(s).
Chambertarget print temperatures. Make sure to obey the time necessary for all machine components to gradually increase to the recommended temperature. Refer to Preheat Build Chamber Components.
The wait time for build chamber components to increase to a stable temperature is thirty minutes to four hours. It is necessary to wait for the full recommended time to get the build chamber components to a stable temperature.
The selected toolhead target temperature must be as close as possible as the extrusion temperature and within 50°C from the bed target temperature when a mesh is probed. The software will not let the machine probe the mesh if the toolhead temperature is set incorrectly.
On the GUI/web browser, select Control > Z Calibration. On this menu, the user can do the actions that follow:
AON3D recommends that the build surface be probed before every print. Probe the build platform, calibrate the Z-axis height, and/or adjust the Z offset, when:
The two toolheads Z-axes must be calibrated when the two toolheads are in operation for the same print.

CALIBRATEto start the probe sequence for the selected toolhead.
• The selected toolhead will move to the center of the X-axis and Y-axis of the probe grid.
• The nozzle will move very near to, or possibly, touch the build platform, after the probe sequence is completed.
If a print uses the two toolheads for the same print, the two toolheads must be calibrated along the X/Y-axes before a print is started. The X/Y-axes calibration procedure adjusts the coordinate system of the two toolheads to be in line with each other. Refer to X/Y Toolheads Offsets Calibration.
After the build surface has been probed, filament must be extruded from the hot end(s) before a print can begin.

All Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) profiles provided by AON3D include brim(s), skirt(s), and/or raft(s) to help adjust the Z offset. Refer to the Material Guides section for more information. To manually add brims, skirts, and/or rafts, refer to Simplify3D® Additions tab.
