We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Ever wonder how accurate or how well calibrated your 3D printer is?
Well now you can find out!
This "thing" has 100mm rulers for each of the X, Y and Z axis and also has 1mm - 10mm holes, in 1mm increments to check that holes come out the right size in your prints!
Load the STL file into your favorite slicer applicaiton and print!
Measure the X,Y & Z rulers with a real ruler and see how well calibrated your printer is!
If your printer is not spot on, you can use this information to update your steps/mm values in your printer firmware's configuration.h file.
This is my first "Thing" that i've created so if you have any suggestions/comments for improving it .. let me know!
Now updated to Version 2 - with a hole gauge on the Y-Axis as well as the Z-Axis as requested by Se5A.
