    I read in here that we should change the z-hop from .1

    Are we changing it to zero?

    Is everyone supposed to do that, or was that just a fix for one persons printer?

    No that was just a suggestion made for one person.

    Got it. Thank you. We have .1, but in Cura it mentioned a different number working well with delta printers. Is .1 the best for a Go?

    You can turn it off if you want to. We include z-hop to compensate for those who do not take care to make sure there is no warpage in their parts. Wether that be printing too hot (more than recommended) or not familiar with design limitations for 3d printing.. like overhangs that will warp without support material.

    Without that 0.10mm, the hotend would crash into features that warp.

    Good to know. I ran a print with it off and the print did not survive. I added the .1 back in and it is past half way knock on wood. It is a sweet little dolphin, but it uses some fancy mesh mixer supports and I am sure that is why it came off the bed.
