Very nice. Thanks for sharing. Just would like to increase the time for each stop....

Thanks for the file. I'm completely new to 3D printing and have a CR-10 mini coming this week. I plan on using this file to help in the leveling process. One question I have is there a way to pause at each point until I manually resume the code? I know a work around would be to increase the pause length. I found that M25 appears to be pause in gcode, but I am unclear if you could resume it via the menu or if it requires something altogether different and therefore could not be used in this case. thanks.

In your "Read Me" file and your comments here you say the bed heater is off by default but the first line of your Gcode says
;M190 S60 ; Set bed heat to 60 & Wait
Doesn't that mean that the bed will heat up when I run the program?
Is it more accurate to level the bed when it is hot?

The ";" is a comment mark. Anything after a comment is disabled or ignored in a script
Remove the begining comment mark ----> ; if you want a heated bed.

IMO, yes, its more accurate to heat the bed prior to leveling. Heating an object makes it expand.

Thank you for your response! Tried it last night and it worked great!

how do you add the g-code script into simplify 3d?

This is to run directly on the printer. No slicing or external program needed. You can tweak it to your liking if you need to modify it in a text editor. The .stl file is a dummy file and not to be used. Load the .gcode file onto your sdcard and select print to start the leveling routine.

Or are you asking how to make this part of EVERY print you make in simplify3d?
