    HELLO, THANKS FOR THE FANTASTIC TUTORIALS ON THE SAIN SMART PROVER. I HAVE JUST PURCHASED MINE AND FOLLOWING YOUR INSTRUCTIONS MADE IT SO SIMPLE TO PUT TOGETHER. BUT YOU SAID SOMETHING WHICH I CANNOT MAKE OUT. YOU SAID THAT A FULL SET OF THE CODES TO PROGRAM THE 3018 ARE AVALABLE ON ???????. I’M A BIT FRUSTRATED CAUSE I NEED THE REVERS THE X AXIS AND I WOULD HATE TO LOOSE THE CODE CAUSE WAS TOO HASTY. COULD YOU HELP ON THIS MATTER PLEASE.
    THANKS BRETT

      Go low and slow:
      RPM 10000
      Feed rate 150 mm/min
      Plunge 50 mm/min
      Depth of cut 0.2mm

      Find the lowest part of the board and zero the z axis there or run multiple times until it flattens the whole board
