What is the problem?
When starting a print the print stays about 1“ off the bed. The machine prints fine from SD card
What did you already try to solve it?
Fully updated firmware and octopi
Have you tried running in safe mode?
Did running in safe mode solve the problem?
You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)
Additional information about your setup
OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible

Is there any difference while starting the print between SD and OctoPrint printing?
Does the homing look different or is there an additional probing or something like that
When I start a print with the SD it works perfectly. When I start it with Octoprint it moves the nozzle about 1" off the build plate and start from there. After starting a print from Octoprint the homing was all off. When homing it kept nozzle at that same strange height and would not actually go back to where home is when I press home on the Mingda. I had to restart the Mingda, unplug the Octopi from the Mingda, and press Home for that to resolve itself. It's a really strange issue. I love Octoprint and would love to be able to use it for the Mingda as I've used it for my Ender 3.
Slice a 1x1x1mm cube and post the gcode file here. Copy it to your SD card and print it. Enable serial logging on OctoPrint, upload the gcode file to OctoPrint, and print it. Post the serial.log here.
My guess is that you will find that there are additional gcode commands in the serial log that didn't come from the actual gcode file. They most likely come from OctoPrint's GCODE Scripts (in Settings).
either that or the printers firmware is adding gcodes in the background when printing from sd card
wouldn't be the first time a manufacturer did that
I assume that firmware is as "good" as the Creality ones.
