Summary

This is a calibration object, similar to other thin wall box objects. The walls of this model really are 0.5mm thick. Despite their name, similar objects previously published here apparently have 0.25 mm thick walls. With a 0.5mm nozzle, it seems reasonable to try printing walls actually 0.5mm thick.

Instructions

Print this and measure the walls to verify that your printer makes walls the correct thickness. Adjust your slicer program's extrusion factors to get the correct wall thickness.

More detailed calibration guidelines have already been posted by people much better at this than I am :)

Should I expect a 0.5mm wall thickness with a 0.5mm J-head nozzle, or slightly larger? I'm getting about 0.62mm. Also, when measuring the outside of the box sides with calipers, should they be 20mm end-to-end, or 20mm + wall thickness?
