The printed auto level plate hits the printer when you are trying to manually fix things. It's pretty darn annoying and anything but a print out the box experience like I've had in the past.
I found with a dial indicator I was only able to level this printer +-.010". This is the worst of the batch I've seen from Afinia. I was really really hoping they fixed this problem so I could print to a borosilicate plate rather than a perf board. At least the printer makes a raft which makes for a level printing surface.
Everything is printing completely skewed. I try to print a cube and a get a rhombazoid. This printers going back ASAP.
Item returned to Afinia. I've seen several Afinia printers and this is the first one with issues. These things happen with all companies. I'm leaving feedback based on my overall experience with these printers.
Oh, and the new combined spool/filament holder is trash, wore through it in a couple of days. I simply printed one of the "stalks" for the H479 and that fixed it.
Don't even bother with the auto-level or auto-nozzle height. Easy enough to use manual adjustments, faster, and more accurate.
Note that the Mac software has a few bugs but nothing you can't manage. Afinia's tech help by email or phone is excellent.
You are not out there alone.
Update - July 2014
There is a little leaning curve and you can spend hours on the internet reading how other people have dealt with problems - particularly the raft lifting and warping. I am printing in a very large room with a dehumidifier running and an air temperature of about 70F. I don't notice an air current but it is there. I experimented with building a cover for my printer out of pink foam insulation board and T pins. I have 4 sides and 2 roof pieces. I can take off a piece to check whenever I want to. It works perfectly. Not the most attractive item but it also disassembles easily. I am printing with BuildTak on glass.
After a month and 1/2 of constant printing of small items from Thingiverse and Tinkercad, I had to order more ABS. I also ordered more buildTak. Once I figured out the proper heat settings for the buildTak, it became so simple to pop those prints off. I didn't want to use the buildTak at first because I had already leveled the bed. After you add the buildTak you will have to manually level the bed, but it's easier than it sounds.
The only thing that I found a little confusing in the software was the calibration settings. But eventually I figured it out and it made the leveling perfect.
