Sometimes you just need a tool you don't quite have. As it turns out I have tons of allen wrenches, none of them traditional and none of which can get to my solidoodles the z-axis ajustemnt screw.

I did however have an old screwdriver set that I had long since lost the handle for. Not that the handle would have helped me. the 2.5mm bit on the otherhand was perfect. It just needed a little 3d printed motivation.


1) Print the handle
2) Insert a 4mm hex bit (2.5mm in my case)
3) Adjust Z stop
4) Marvel at your prints as the first layer nolonger gets squished down forming a natural brim that fuses together nearby parts. Wonder why you didn't do this two months ago :P
