Bed Levelling, Mesh, First Print Cal, NOT HAPPENING

The Prusa Mini + arrived last week, all excited i was to finally own a prusa. That was short lived when i attempted to tune the bed in after following the steps in the manual. The nozzle wasn't reaching the bed, and that's AFTER i reach -2.000 for the offset, still no luck. So, i figured the bed needed raising a wee bit, so i added M3 nuts under each spacer, raising the bed just slightly. Well, that didn't work either, was like the extra height was non-existent. The only option i can think of at this time is to lower the hotend and readjust the MINDA. 

Need help before i pack it up and send it back.....

Please show us a picture of your hot-end/MINDA assembly - and remove those M3 nuts.

Cheerio,

Think: If heat bed would require higher position, then there would already be longer spacers from factory. Or you think all users have put additional nuts there?
Before you try to fix any problem, you need to learn and understand how 3D printer works. In this case, how SuperPINDA works and how to adjust it -it has been described here in forum many, many times.

RE:

Hmmm....  Looks like your sensing position might be off.  See this page:

If you don't have the correct zip tie use a credit card.

Yes, what Diem said. The inductive probe is too low. Adjust that as directed in the assembly instructions and try again.
