3D Calibration Ruler
by RichieC, published
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!

It was never really ment to mesure the build height (with the ruler starting at the bed), just to check that the calibration is correct when compared to a "real" ruler on each of the axis.
Good part to stress-test printing of large flat sections, among other things.
@RichieC, the circle holes on the Y axis are a bit too close. Makes them hard to print. Could you move them apart a bit, maybe leave 4-5 mm between them?

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.
