    I just loaded this and I can’t get it to do the auto level routine. Any ideas? It just jumps into printing after G29

    Sorry, I read more and got it to do the probing, but the numbers look wrong

    The other methods of bed leveling are somewhat more involved than the ABL and BiLinear methods used in previous versions of Marlin.
    They can be much better, but it is not as simple as just adding a G29 to your GCode :)

    I used these commands but the Z number seemed like all values were 4 mm

    M502 ; only needed if EEPROM hasn’t been initialized
    M500 ; only needed if EEPROM hasn’t been initialized
    M501 ; only needed if EEPROM hasn’t been initialized
    M190 S65 ; not required but having the printer at temperature helps accuracy
    M104 S210; not required but having the printer at temperature helps accuracy
    G28
    G29 P1 ; automated probing of the bed
    G29 P3 O ; repeat until all mesh points are filled in
    G29 O ; view the Z compensation values
    G29 A ; Activate the UBL System
    G29 S 1; save the values to EEPROM
    M500 ; save current setup with UBL active at power up
    G26 C P O3.0 ; produce mesh validation pattern with primed nozzle
    G29 P4 O ; move nozzle to ‘bad’ areas and fine tune the values if needed
    Repeat G26 and G29 P4 O as needed
    G29 S 1 ; save the values to EEPROM

    @WheresWaldo has done this -- let's see if we can get him to comment on it.
    I do not use MESH

    I ditched this idea for now. I’m on 1.1 RC8 ABL. I’LL post another thread of what I’m trying to do and my experience. I really want to get this going to print COVID ear savers and face masks. I’m more concerned with mechanical annoy]ances that went straight downhill with the hot end jam

    When it comes to bed leveling I am much more in favor of:
    1) mechanically leveling the bed as best it can be.
    2) using a sheet of float glass on top of it if you need more

    Cheap and easy enough to do.

    The newer Marlin leveling is not bad, but you can spend more time chasing it than it can be worth :)
