Summary

Here's a calibration sheet that I made which makes it easy to level a Makerbot Replicator.

This one also has an affordance (the attached square) to make it easy to keep track of where you are in your measurement in case you get lost, as I always do.

Instructions

Print it out without a raft, and use your calipers to measure the thickness of each corner. Adjust your leveling screws and reprint until all four corners are the same thickness. Ideally this thickness should be slightly less than your layer thickness value.

Weird. They're there in the STL. I've never used that software so I have no idea what might be going on.

am i supposed to understand that procedure?

What don't you understand?

i don't understand the procedure you describe. what and where do i have to measure? could you possibly go into a bit more detail? ;)

You measure the thickness of the corners, using a caliper. I'm not sure how to be more specific than that.
