 +== Adjusting Z once printing starts (sometimes called babysteps)
 +You can adjust the Z while it is printing by using the WCS offsets.
 +For instance to raise the head 0.1mm..
 +1. G10 P0 L2 Z0.1 # this will set the Z WCS to 0.1mm higher, however it will NOT move the head immediately as it only takes effect on the next G1 that has a Z in it
 +2. G0 Znnn # this will move the Z after the last received g code to nnn, you will need to make sure that nnn is the actual z height you want right now (usually the Z it is currently at, as 0.1mm will be added to that due to step 1)
 +A better and easier way is in the very latest edge build.
 +''​G43.2 Z0.1''​ will raise the Z by 0.1mm by setting the Z tool offset and also queing a move by 0.1mm, this is not instant but will happen when the previous g codes have executed. It can be cancelled with G49. **NOTE** as this uses tool offsets a multi extruder setup executing a T0 or T1 will reset the offset to the default for that tool.
