Fast and Level Test for ABS and Heated Beds by wildseyed Dec 1, 2012


My print bed uses two point leveling, and this is the file that I use. Will also work for three and four point leveling.

The object consists of fourteen (14) alternating layers of rounded zig-zags, and straight line runs.

In addition to being a good leveling test, it serves to demonstrate both best and worst case speed testing.

The vertical dimension is 1mm. This allows you to scale the model to your printer's/slicer's layer height. For example, if you have a 0.3 layer height, then you will want to scale the object's Z height to 0.3, while leaving X and Y at 1.0. Repetier, and others support this feature of scaling.

The key to a good print is a clean, level, well-heated bed. With ABS, the nominal temperature for a good stick is very narrow (+/-2.5°C). Speed also play a part.
