Is there anyone that does 3d printing near worcester ma? I need help dialing in my printer and can't figure it out for the life of me.

Most local libraries have maker spaces with 3D printers they might have a tech person that could help you troubleshoot.

Not that I have one or much experience with one, I do have time and research abilities. A second set of eyes may help out. I've invested a bit of time into different models and manufacturers (sp?) to know which model and brand to get. What brand and model do you have and what is the issue?

It's a creality cr20 pro. I can't seem to find the right balance of bed height and z axis height. Each time I get the bed lvl and run a print the nozzle digs into the bed. So then I adjust the axis height and then the nozzle is to far. I make sure when I adjust the axis it is the width of a printing paper and everything but I get either or never the right match.

You should have a micro stepping option during your print so you can fine tune the hight. It’s best to start a bit high and tune it down until things looks right. Then just note what you did and run that as your z zero in the future. What material are you printing and how clean is the bed? Both of these will affect adhesion and the success of your print
