    The one that you can put to instantly lower the print bed (raise head) after a print finishes to stop the hotend from making a dimple in the top layer when it finishes printing ?
    thank you

    If you just want to lower it a bit, then you need to do the following
    1. Change to relative positioning (G91)
    2. Move down 5 mm (G1 Z5)
    3. Return to absolute positioning (G90)
    If you want to move the entire bed to the bottom, then your end print script should just do that
    1. Move to nnn, where nnn is the bottom (G1 Znnn)

    Oops, I have been doing a lot of modeling with Daz3D and they label vertical as Y, 3D printers use Z, so I had to change the commands above to Z instead. Sorry I wasn't paying attention.
