 If you have looked at the forums, you will see that more than 50% of problems come from level problems. This is the hardest step of the process because it is inherently inaccurate (ironic isn't it?). In this step you are going to physically level the printer by putting an empty vat in the printer and have the build plate rest against it. Then tighten screws under the vat to make sure there is proper pressure. If you have looked at the forums, you will see that more than 50% of problems come from level problems.

-===== 5Let's fine tune your leveling and make sure it's spot on (this takes between 30 min and 2 hours) ​===== +
-If you did the previous step correctly, this will be a breeze. If your leveling is off (fyi, everyone'​s ​leveling is off, even mine was :-)), this will take some time. In this step you are going to put resin in the vat and print a sample gcode. The gcode has 4 cylinders placed in the corners of the build plate. You will then need to measure those cylinders and compare the sizes with calipers and make adjustments. +
