So bed scratching seems to be a real thing, and not a single post I've come across (I've looked at more than 30 by now) actually answers the question on exactly how to stop this.
Now, I have an Ender 3 and this is becoming enough of a headache that I want to just give it away. I thought that the old bed was just wrecked so spend £30 on a new glass bed .. Guess what .. Wrecked that too.
Please don't suggest I level the bed - it is levelled, not gravitationally, but mechanically. I have tightened everything up. I have tried altering the XYZ axis on the actual printer. I have tried adding some numbers to the Z axis in Cura, but it just snaps back down to zero. I have played with base layer thickness, with no difference. I have run nine different test prints, with every single one coming out perfectly. I have ABS at 250 °C and bed at 90 °C. Sticking to the bed is not a problem.
Why .. Why, why why, is it scratching the bed when I then go to print something? Nothing has changed!! I even zero'd the test prints in Cura the same way I did my parts prints.
Would seriously appreciate some help before I just toss this thing.
