Good morning,

I have a brand new Little Monster : I do not have the calibration menu on the screen.
Can you help ?
Best regards

connect via the usb with pronterface, then type in the G-code in this order

G28 (send printer to home)
G29 (run a full calibration)
M500 (save changes)

Once you have done this then power cycle the printer and reconnect to pronterface then
G28 (home)
G0 Z0 (go to where it thinks Z 0 is)
- use the jog commands 0.1 to jog down till it grabs a piece of papper (1 jog up should not hold paper, one jog down holds paper)
M306 Z0 (set the new Z 0 point where head is now)
M500 (Save changes)
- power cycle the printer.

Make sue you are ready to pull the power on first calibration in case you connected BL touch the wrong way, I suggest putting a paddle pop stick in the middle of the bed where the nozzle would impact as an emergency impact protection (just not where the BL touch with hit).
If it ain't broke then modify it
