"Open the printer setting option of the slicing software, and add the G90 command before other motion commands in the initial Gcode.
It is recommended to use Creality Print slicing software, which already adds the required starting Gcode commands by default.
During printing, adjusting the Z-axis is effective for the current printing, and saving during printing will trigger SAVE_CONFIG, which will disconnect the printer and cause printing failure, so adjust it to save after printing is finished.
