Well tonight I configured sl1c3r to work with the Tevo LM. I am currently printing an object and it's working well.

I wanted to say in my earlier post I thought I had help from someone here but they disappeared on me. Today I finally realized the only problem I had was the Z-Axis offset. I was able to resolve this last (minor) issue.

I am also running sl1c3r under vmware image of Windows 7 under Linux and just transferring the gcode via sd card. I wish I could get Cura working with the LM. I hope to work on that soon then I can use Linux native version.

I also bought a second Creality Ender 3 I really love those cheap but fantastic little printers. I have been printing a ton of things like Jetson GPU cases and pegboard tool holders on that low end printer (My workbench is becoming so organized now, heh.)

If anyone needs help getting LM working from someone with my limited experience just let me know. I have only printed a couple of small things on the LM today but that will change soon I have great plans!

I am sure anyone who knows anything would probably agree with me that the LM is not a beginners printer. I was a rank beginner and I was lacking in basic knowledge. My limited experience with the Ender 3 helped me to tackle the LM and get it printing finally.

Oh for anyone who wants to know about Z-Axis offset it seems all you really have to do is set it to 1.7 in your startup gcode in whatever slicer you use and then dial it in from there. It simply worked for me at that value. I did a careful build so was very lucky that everything calibrated so I knew that the LM was functioning well.
