Thank you both. I'll give painter's tape a try. Looks like the extruder calibration should have been part of the setup instructions...
But I'm not sure how I can get there from here just yet. Looks like I'll have to learn some new software and get a USB cable. (I've just been sneaker netting files onto the SD card so far.)
I haven't ever leveled the print bed. It seems to do it by itself every time it prints. There was a bit in the setup instructions about adding this line:
G29 C-0.8 Z0.5 ;auto-level
From what I understood the G29 tells it to go touch 3 switches near the columns and then it figures out the Z0 plane is 0.5mm above that. That's about how thick the sticker on the print bed is, seems logical.
For now I'll try the tape, and I'll see what I can do about doing the calibration as soon as I learn how to setup being able to.
Don't forget to get the latest version STLs so your panic button isn't off like mine was and the PCB stuff has clearance.
If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid -
