I have a thicker glass plate on the bed. Also, I have a z-axis offset at the maximum value 50 yet the nozzle does not clear the plate.

Why can't I adjust the axis beyond 50?

    $\begingroup$ Please explain with a figure what your problem is. The problem is not very "clear". $\endgroup$

There are several ways to get the Z0 into a position the sotware can account for it without needing to write your own firmware if needed:

  • Remove the build-tak-clone under your glass sheet to get the better heat transfer and remove a couple millimeters.
  • Tighten the bed leveling to account for some millimeters.
  • Move the physical endstop to account for the thicker build platform.
