Parametric version of bsutton's excellent bed level test object. Includes a greater number of test points spread evenly across the bed.

This object is designed to help you check that you are correctly leveling you printer bed. It prints nine super thin squares in each corner of you printer bed.

The objects should appear even with a smooth surface.


Level your bed, print the object and check the results.

You may want to download the scad file and adjust the x and y dimensions to match your printer bed.

The default values are:

See the calibration page on reprap.org for full details on calibrating your printer.

I found this extremely useful to level my print bed.
I just start the print and while it's filling out one of the squares, I keep adjusting the nearest screw until the layer is flat and clean.
Takes around 15 minutes for the whole thing, but I found this to be the most precise way to get my bed level and the only way to get it perfectly right :)

Thanks a lot for that.

I cant print this dunno why :| My printer does the autolevel and then just stops... like if there was nothing to print! :| But i can print other objects, can someone help me out please?

Hi, You might want to check the layer height settings on your printer's slicing software. The calibration object is deliberately very thin (0.1mm) so a layer height greater than this will likely result in nothing being printed. I believe I had exactly the same problem when I first tried printing it. :-) Good luck!, Phil

Yeah .... I realised that after a good night sleep LOL was too tired... and i'm a bit dumb too LOL Thanks a lot man =)

This might be good to combine with printing anything - so that the printer gets to warm up on a thin shape somewhere other than the main piece. 

That's a good point Nath, might try that sometime.
