The bottom of the level sensor is about 1cm higher than the bottom of the extruder, making leveling impossible, auto or otherwise. I don't know which one to try to move, and I don't even know if I can move anything that far. Plus, I don't know what the relationship between the bottom of the sensor and the extruder should be. Where can I find out how to deal with this?

Also, the x axis belt has several cm of play in it. Is that okay, or should I find a way to tighten it up so that there is minimal slack?
