    So i did something like a thousand circles to level the bed.. until i got perfect round shaped filament lines all the way around - 360 degrees. It's what i would call perfect height..
    But when i then print from Cura - the prime line in front is smashed down the bed, completely flat - and the actual print is way to far from the bed for it to be anything usable...
    What can be wrong? It feels like my leveling system is completely broken.. HELP! im not able to print anything with my R2 :(

    Does Cura include the startup GCode to DO the autoleveling (G29)?

    Or maybe there is a global first layer offset, not familiar enough with Cura to know if they do that.

    Worst case look through the documentation for Cura and search for startup GCode script. There should be a place to add/edit that.

    I haven't had issues printing from Cura, with the default settings on it. Do you have the correct printer profile set up in the Cura settings?
