Calibration Pyramid with 8mm Hole

Well, it depends on the printer and how well built it is and how well tuned it is. But usually, I don't have to recalibrate the printer ever, once it is tuned in.
On printers where parts are loosening or wearing out (like wooden gears and plastic bearings) you will probably need to check your calibration about ever 100 hours of print time. Or, if you change a major part on your printer (nozzle tip diameter, hot end, or the whole extruder would be major changes), then you should run a test print to make sure all is good.
A good rule of thumb is just to look at the parts though. If they look good enough for your application and are acceptable to you, just keep on printing.
